Jose James

April 24, 2009

jose-james1


This week is all about voices, a silky smooth female pop voice from Pollyn and now a warm rich baritone from Jose James. Having supersaturated myself with in-your-face dubstep and dance music lately, it has been nice to step back and let jazz records take a spin.  So let me introduce Jose James, “The New Soul Singer for the Hip-Hop generation”.  

I heard Jose James first when I bought one of his 12″s a while back on a whim after seeing Flying Lotus in the production credits.  I was surprised, but pleasantly so, when I got the record to find out it was a soul jazz record rather than the usual leftfield beats I had come to expect from FlyLo production.  Having forgotten about this record I was pleased when I found it the other day and have been enjoying it all week.

His music is modern jazz with a hat tip towards hip hop and soul.  Love starts off with nothing but lovely rhodes and his whispering voice before fast drums and standup bass kick in to complete the sound.  Visions of Violet (produced by Flying Lotus) is more of a soul track with horns and melody breakdowns, the lyrics coaxing you to enjoy the night.  I played this track at Art-Life in December and it went over really well.

Jose James has done work with Jazzanova, Jazzy Sport, and Simbad amongst others and is signed to Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings (go figure).  His full length The Dreamer was put out last January and you can buy it here.  Also, if you like, a couple more tracks can be found on hypem, including the track with Jazzanova.  

So the next time you’re cooking a nice meal or trying to impress, pour yourself a glass of red and let these tracks play out. Enjoy!

Remix Radiohead

September 28, 2008

No matter what, radiohead always seems to end up on everyone’s playlists.  After hearing about how great the concert in Vancouver was I started playing some of my radiohead tracks. . .and came across these gems.  Remixes by Modeselektor, Flying Lotus and Diplo.  How can you go wrong!  Basically three of my fav. djs/producers/groups right now!!  (yes I know the modeselektor track is not a remix, but still it’s got that famous Thom Yorke sound on top of it so I am including it in the post).

Soon I will be able to get some new good new music up, my basement is getting reconverted into a recording studio.  After 2 months of storage, the equipment is all coming out again!  Will keep you posted. . .
