I spent September 2015 in Lucerne (or Luzern), Switzerland via the CLAER Program, as a Cultural Ambassador for Chicago Sister Cities International (CSCI). I returned twice in 2022 —April (as part of my Euro Grand Tour) and September again— to collaborate with resident artist Jonas Raeber for the program’s 20th Anniversary celebration.

On a sidenote, I suspect we inspired this fun Swiss tourism spot, hopefully we get cameos next time! Anyway, here’s a beat I produced after my first visit, called A-YO for the traditional Swiss alphorn and yodel samples (the Busta/Dilla vocal was a fitting afterthought)…
