The DJ/producer will embark on an eight-city jaunt dubbed The Lick Shots Tour with Toronto’s NOTES TO SELF that will touch down in Winnipeg on Saturday, March 21 at Hi Fi Club.

Babu released the latest installment of his Duck Season series, Volume 3, in October of 2008 on Nature Sounds. He is best known as a turntablist/partyrocking legend who helped usher in the DMC/ITF/Vestax era with the most popular DJ battle record in the world, Super Duck Breaks, and as a member of groundbreaking music entities, DILATED PEOPLES and THE WORLD FAMOUS BEAT JUNKIES.

Though known primarily for his prowess behind the decks, he has been building a production resume with work featured on albums by Dilated, LIKWIT JUNKIES (his collaboration project with DEFARI) and on his own Duck Season series.
