I am thrilled to announce that Alific will be joining The Movement for their upcoming tour with Iration! I met The Movement’s guitarist-vocalist Joshua Swain last summer at a Rebelution show, and a few months later I hung out with bassist Jason “Smiles” Schmidt and drummer Gary Jackson at the Cali Roots Carolina Sessions. We all connected over a mutual love of reggae and hip hop. After the Carolina Sessions, I sent The Movement a demo song in hopes that we could collaborate on a recording. The conversation grew and we found out that we had a lot in common musically. A few weeks ago, I was elated when The Movement asked me to join them on stage for their upcoming national tour supporting Iration. The band wanted to bring back DJ scratching and samples into their set, as well as filling out the sound with keyboards and guitar. As a huge fan and follower of The Movement, I’m beyond stoked to be joining them from January 24-March 9 as the 4th guy on stage performing in the band for the entire tour.
