As if the name in itself isn’t intriguing enough, the music on this is truly euphoric jazz,….the genuine engagement of rhythm & sound… This musical offering…Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do starts off by introducing us to the thought connecting vibration In Memory Of Samir Awad. It was written to commemorate a Palestinian teen killed by Israeli forces as he fled their gunfire in 2013. …i love this group already and this is my first encounter with their music! In order to get a better understanding of how this group came to manifest and the meaning behind their insightfully selected name Sons Of Kemet listen & read here~You won’t be disappointed.

You can get this “low noise ferric tape cassette in a transparent shell and case with a Fully coloured label on both the A and B sides and a Fully coloured inlay card with artwork by James Greenway.” or just stream it on bandcamp and enjoy~ either way support good music! befits the Crown. It’s the Dope~

My most relaxing discovery this week… a 2 piece at that, Im so cool in Seoul & Lord Bougainvillard by Etienne de la Sayette >>>> go be cool>>>
|| Things starts with “I’m So Cool In Seoul”, the soundtrack to a very pleasant, relaxing road-movie. Close your eyes. You’re in a taxi, in the streets of Seoul, Korea. It’s the early hours, the day has just barely started. The sun is slowly rising to some deep, soul jazz funkyness. In the background you hear some Zimbabwean mbira…
When suddenly, out of nowhere, “Lord Bougainvillard” arrives on the scene.
The mbira is still playing, but the scenery has morphed into a kind of out of hand chamber afrobeat paying homage to an imaginary explorer.
Or is that Etienne de la Sayette messing with your mind?
Open you eyes. Play it again. Search for the details. It’s all in the details.
Je$u$ aka Heyzus Kannibalismus is the German beatmaker behind this melodically vibrant instrumental presentation….meaning to sharpen or grind… The Schleifen EP is dope~
