Incredible Ease has lymphoma cancer and is officially in the stem cell program in the United States. This has been a very long process for Incredible Ease and his family. Ease went through Cancer treatment in Canada but as he is an American… citizen he was not covered by medical. His bills became too high, his family was not able to keep up as the cost of cancer treatment is very high, eventually Ease was cut off of treatment. Thus fundraising began.
A family has opened up their doors to Ease and are donating a room in their house so Ease has a place to live while going through treatment. He receives home cooked meals and transportation to and from appointments. This has been a tremendous help. However bills still come in and Ease and his family continue to struggle.
Funds raised will go towards Ease’s medical bills in Canada to help alleviate the stress of those bills on his family and also to help towards whatever incidental expenses while he is in the United States. We would also like to give back to the family that so generously opened their doors to Ease. Expenses will also go towards travel for his family (wife and daughter) to come from Canada for visits. They use Greyhound as their main transportation source.
We hope to see you all out at the next event. It’s a great way to donate to Ease and to support your local artists! Keep informed by liking our page
We all thank you for any donation given. No donation is too small. You can send your donations to Ease’s PayPal account at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Krispy Bisket Family thanks Shaun Bocking, Michael Oakes, Andrew Naysmith & Max Knight for all their support, hard work, dedication and guidance with these fundraisers.
THE INCREDIBLE EASE AKA PUERTO ROCK PAPI! Raised in Paterson NJ during the birth of Hip Hop. He toured the world in the US NAVY CVN 70. They made 2 successful Westpac’s & one of the first NORPACS. After honorable discharge, Ease went to work for BOEING in Everett WA (pre-flight/delivery/flight line lead & 747-400 line.) Ease teamed up with musical prodigy Quaze/Stan Sly /Quazedelic to release several singles and records. Taped for radio by DJ Kilocee in the 90’s. Krispy Bisket co-op radio 102.7 had Incredible Ease and DJ Kilocee teaming up to bring underground radio what it had been missing - REAL HipHop! They had this radio show for 8 years. Now almost 15 years later this epic team find themselves back on the radio scene broadcasting live on Saturday nights from 12am to 2am on CJSF 90.1FM SFU radio. Bringing the same skills as “back in the co-op days.”

BROADCASTING CREATIVE EXPRESSION
“The concept holds true across all areas of the musical world, but for underground and forward-thinking electronic music especially, it seems like a natural step to take matters into your own hands and create an autonomous platform for yourself. The Internet has always made this a more tangible possibility for musicians, and there is an element to the role of many a DJ and electronic artist in their constant search for sonic progression that seems intrinsic to the ever-changing face of this medium. Vancouver’s Chapel Sound collective are a prime example of how a cyber-connected world – what some might consider to be an alienating societal development – can be used instead to foster a musical community.
Broadcasting a weekly live video stream every Wednesday from their chapelsound.com website, the group describe themselves as “a collective of artists who’ve come from a variety of backgrounds and joined together in Vancouver to push creative expression forward without boundaries or prejudice.” The website and weekly show is a simple but effective setup – a webcam view of a living room shows a variety of people trading positions behind turntables for the duration of an evening, with the music travelling the breadth of the realm of IDM and cerebral beat music and its influences. Whilst to some the webcam element might seem a superfluous addition to what is primarily a musical venture, the explosive worldwide popularity of the Boiler Room platform suggests that the video element helps a geographically scattered audience to connect. “The live stream element was very much…”

“Truthseeker LP is the new full length album from Jellyfish’s own, AstroLogical aka. Nate Drobner. As the seventh solo release in his growing catalog, Truthseeker is a collection of hypnotic jazz/funk hip-hop beats, full of Fender Rhodes, subby basslines, Dilla-influences, and touches of psychedelia. The album is nearly entirely comprised of samples (with the exception of Passage), and features Vancouver rapper Kapok (of the Indigo Kids), and A-Ro of Elekwent Folk. Collaborations with fellow Jellyfish mainstay Nick Wisdom (of Potatohead People) & Denmark-based producer Galimatias also appear. Have a glass of absinthe (or whatever mind expanding tools you prefer) and enjoy the uniquely cosmic sounds that AstroLogical continues to consistently pump out. 2013 is looking bright already.”
