Instead of November, Gilles has coined the term ‘Yes-vember’ just for this month as he prepares to release his next full-length project titled, ‘Super.’ A couple weeks back we premiered his latest joint, ‘The Righteous Ratchet’ for your listening pleasure.
Here, we have details on his plans for that week of release. The album drops on the 18th but Gilles hopes to make it an all-out, week-long celebration. The Day 1 Radio crew hosts a Q&A first on the 10th and a few days later Angela Yee will be at the helm of his listening party.
Yes-vember” is all about the release of “Super.”, his latest contribution to the music scene. The full-length project, set to be released on November 18, 2014, will be celebrated with an intimate listening party followed by the official album release party.

The “very live” album release party will be a festive celebration that will include Gilles performing the “Super.” album with the incredibly talented “Band of Brothers”.

This event will feature guest dj’s Jeremy Avalon, Mikkoh and DDecoteau, a special art exhibit by Jermaine Clark and a gaming lounge courtesy of Konsole Kingz, the leaders in urban gaming internationally.

Pieces from that collaboration will be available for purchase at the Pop-Up Shop at this event. The evening will be hosted by the nationally syndicated radio personality Angela Yee.
