VIDEO PREMIERE: DC electronica duo Thievery Corporation get groovy yet political in Jamaica in video for “Letter to the Editor”

Thievery Corporation sounds like a diabolical enterprise at the center of a Marvel film, but in this universe, they’re the electronica duo infusing the sounds of Jamaica into the synth-based grooves of tomorrow. In their new visual for “Letter to the Editor”, they call on the talents of Racquel Jones, a Kingston spitter with a knack for obliterating instrumentals, and let her loose on the track to do as she pleased. The song is equal parts tropical and trippy, full of social commentary and pure…See More

London jazz duo Blue Lab Beats is soulful alchemy for your ears

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 1:32pm 0 Comments

What do you get when you combine electric guitar, synth bass, a hip hop sensibility and two young musicians with a world imagination? The answer is Blue Lab Beats. The British duo is drawing on the Dilla and neo soul’s legacy of fusing hip hop, jazz and soul, and making a brand of contemporary jazz that would fit equally well at Essence festival as it would in a 90s coffee shop in West Philadelphia. In this video from Jazz FM, you’ll see duo absolutely kill their set, with…

PREMIERE: Debut From Chicago Avant-Funk Trio Bottle Tree, “Open Secret,” Combines Spirituality and African Rhythms

Posted on February 17, 2017 at 1:45pm 0 Comments

The spirit of Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM), the 51-years-old-and-running-strong powerhouse of black American avant-garde, runs deeply through “Open Secret,” the first track from Bottle Tree. The sound that the trio — composer/cornetist/synth player Ben Lamar Gay, vocalist/percussionist/scholar A.M. Frison, and Italian drummer Tommaso Moretti — evoke is what one imagines the great Art Ensemble of Chicago would have sounded like if…

Now sure how the song review selection works? However here is a link to our latest release "It Could Have Been Me". It is dedicated to the memory of Trayvon, Eric, Michael and Oscar, and our contribution to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Thanks

Thanks for the past love for Warrior. Here is a link for the new single "What Did I Do?". It's about the erosion of a relationship unbeknownst to you. You know when your brother, sister, friend or lover decides that something you did was so bad that they just cut off your relationship?
