Optic Nerve’s Jon Kane and I met because I really loved the pioneering mix “No Sell Out” by Malcolm X & Keith LeBlanc, on Tommy Boy Records. (It’s too long a story to recount here right now.) After a bumpy start we’ve worked together awesomely ever since.
Carrie and I visited Jon at his Red Hook (Brooklyn) HQ yesterday. We canceled the project that had initiated the visit to begin with, so I thought we’d just be BS’ing about this and that. But as usual with a great creative collaborator we ended up agreeing to work on a project together. Can’t wait to get started.
