Vanilla – For What It’s Worth

null

New stuff from the english beatmaker Vanilla, I’ve enjoyed “High Life” back in 2011 and actually i figured out that i missed “Soft Focus” last year…. anyway this is “For What It’s Worth” a collection of 20 outtakes and loose instrumentals, stream below and download at the bottom, enjoy!

‘For What It’s Worth’ is a collection of 20 outtakes and loose instrumentals made over the past year that I felt could use a home. There’s a slightly jazzier vibe here than my other stuff but overall there’s no real unifying theme. I am working hard on the proper follow up to Soft Focus as well as some other major projects so hopefully 2013 should be an eventful year…

Thanks for all the support!

Cyrus – New Batch ’13

null

This is Cyrus, electronic jazz/hip-hop producer from Montreal, Canada. He initially planned to leave these 4 tracks as singles but after my request he was very kind enough to create a set on soundcloud called “New Batch ’13” plus he sent a link to download the mp3’s, he reminds me a little bit the early Bonobo and i really like this batch, stream below and download at the bottom, enjoy!

everybodydigs#46 John Coltrane – A Love Supreme

null

everybodydigs# is a series of posts about Jazz, Funk, Soul & R’n’b albums released from the 20s to the 90s, you can read a brief description/review and listen to a small preview (when it’s possible). everybodydigs# is like when someone tells you “hey you should listen to this album!” and nothing less, enjoy!

A Love Supreme is a suite about redemption, a work of pure spirit and song, that encapsulates all the struggles and aspirations of the 1960s. Following hard on the heels of the lyrical, swinging Crescent, A Love Supreme heralded Coltrane’s search for spiritual and musical freedom, as expressed through polyrhythms, modalities, and purely vertical forms that seemed strange to some jazz purists, but which captivated more adventurous listeners (and rock fellow travelers such as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and the Byrds), while initiating a series of volatile, unruly prayer offerings, including Kulu Su Mama, Ascension, Om, Meditations, Expression, Interstellar Space. From the urgent speech-like timbre of his tenor, to the serpentine textures and earthy groove of Elvin Jones’s drumming, Coltrane’s suite proceeds with escalating intensity, conveying a hard-fought wisdom and a beckoning serenity in the prayer-like drones of “Psalm,” where Jones rolls and rumbles like thunder as Garrison and Tyner toll away suggestively–all the while Coltrane searches for that one climactic note worthy of the love he wants to share. –Chip Stern
