Souljazz’s Pierre Chrétien and his bandmates began work on the setlist in July. The final setlist included 16 songs fused breaks and hip hop classics like DJ Kool, James Brown and DJ Shadow, woven in with afro and ethio-jazz compositions by Manu Dibango and Multatu Astatke, topped off by Souljazz originals Agoya and Insurrection.
House of PainT is finally releasing the official video of the battle, featuring the music of Souljazz Orchestra. The visuals are provided by the amazing finalists – GWS Crew from the Yukon and three-time champs Toronto’s Floor Assassins Militia. Watch and be amazed. This is happening right in your backyard, Ottawa.
