Monday morning has arrived and this week’s STERYO Play features music from Adian Coker, Kap G, Millennium Jazz’s Gadget, K-Def, Derlee, Dead Horse Beats, Honne, and many more.
Last week we featured Idealism’s rainy evening album – and we just couldn’t get enough so we decided to post his latest work – hiraeth [ep]. I’ve been enjoying the hiraeth [ep] album for thinking to gather inspiration especially late in the evening.
I tell you why Alfa Mist’s Antiphon album will be timeless – because generations from now when someone listens to this album they will discover that the sociopolitical narration, alongside the music of Antiphon was a blueprint to change.
STERYO Play is a hand selected playlist comprised of deep cuts from jazz, hip hop, electronic, and world music made available every Monday.
Loupe’s Good Company is made available through “MelodySoul an in-house production team specializing in collaborations; linking musicians with various hubs of like-minded people and artists within our industry and culture.”
“Mark de Clive-Lowe delivers an outstanding 4 track EP recorded live at Los Angeles’ Blue Whale jazz club. The EP finds MdCL revisiting the grand piano, putting his first instrument front and center with his technological world of keyboards and electronics. It’s his signature amalgamation of acoustic sound sparring with new technology, joined by a world-class crew: Josh Johnson (Miguel Atwood-Ferguson/Wayne Shorter) on sax and flute, Brandon Eugene Owens (Robert Glasper/Terrace Martin) on bass and Gene Coye (Thundercat/Flying Lotus) on drums.
STERYO Play No. 50 features music from The Jazz Jousters, Sinitus Tempo, SoulChef, Esbe, Evil Needle, and Damu The Fudgemunk.
Mulatu Astatke’s highly acclaimed Inspiration Information 3 released in 2009 under Strut Records. He’s known as the father of Ethiopian jazz, which is a blend of pop, modern jazz, traditional Ethiopian music, Latin, caribbean reggae, and Afro-funk.
