New music out of Manchester UK ! Children of Zeus aka Tyler Daley and KonnyKon(Broke’n'£nglish) have been working on a new HipHop/Soul project for a little while now and this past week we got to hear just what they’ve been up to in the studio. The duo have now dropped three new tracks on their soundcloud page as free downloads and i hear there’s still more to come. This is music to my ears !!
Rebel Tumbao (Rebel “Groove”) is a family of like minded musician’s deeply committed to creating and performing music packed with groove, consciousness, spirituality, resistance, and positive vibrations with an authentic sound they call “AfroLatinRootsReggae”.
This funky fresh earthly sound is the uncompromising fusion of two of the most celebrated musical genres on the planet; Roots Reggae and contemporary Cuban Son – with deep influences of 70’s Soul, Gospel, the Blues, Jazz and African folkloric idioms. At the epicenter of this soundscape are pianist, singer, composer and educator, Matt Jenson and world-renowned percussionist and composer, José Claussell.
These partners in musical justice share a profound artistic vision of hope and truth expressed with poetic insights into today’s globalized culture. Their mind-scope is based on combining Bob Marley’s gospel of love, truth, justice, and economic equality with their mission to inspire all people to be more conscious of the social, economic and ecological impact of their actions. Rebel Tumbao, with their original compositions, awesome arrangements of Marley songs and progressive lyrics, will transport your mind, body and spirit to the healthier world we all know is possible.
It’s been over a year since producer, Amerigo Gazaway, released *Bizarre Tribe: A Quest To The Pharcyde* and he’s been eager to finally share a taste of his follow up.
Advancing the direction of his Otis Redding x Big Boi, re-work “Shutterbugg”, Gazaway’s new *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were.
On the series’ first installment, the producer unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey(FKA Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye.” Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-orchestrates the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s dense raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality far closer to Gaye’s famous duets than that of a “mashup” album.
