Something About April Part 2
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Linear Labs)
24,29 €* 26,99 € -10%
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
In the four years since the release of Something About April, Adrian Younge has been coined America’s black genius: the evocation of analog vestige in a digital era. His majestic music has garnered him reverence, likened to Ennio Morricone’s best work and the Beatles’ tenacity to create new sounds. Making an indelible impression on modern vinyl heads and producers alike (having been sampled by DJ Premier, Jay-Z, Common, 50 Cent) the Something About April brand is an axiom to the modern “Breakbeat,” and Linear Labs is happy to announce its successor: Something About April II. Recorded with a collection of rare instruments, Something About April II advances Younge’s musical paradigm with enterprising concepts, and grander compositions, synthesizing the boundaries between dark American soul, and classic European cinema. This latest release features an array of entrancing vocalists: Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab) and Bilal, perform duets on “Step Beyond” and “La Ballade,” reminiscent of duets from Serge Gainsborg & Jane Birkin; Raphael Saadiq blends “Black Jazz” vocals with psychedelic soul on “Magic Music,” while Israeli star, Karolina, delivers haunting chants over concertos like “Hear my love” and “Winter is Here.” Long time Adrian Younge collaborator Loren Oden croons as if the apparent ghost of Donnie Hathaway created one last love song with “Sandrine” and “Sittin’ by the Radio.” Younge is the experimental spirit of the modernist vanguard, looking into the past to create the future. What this album extrapolates from vinyl culture, will become further magnified by its sampling down the line. Something About April II will replace the former as a holy grail for producers and collectors alike…

Limited edition on 180gram vinyl of 500 copies!

Record Kicks presents the new album "Late Nights & Heartbreak" by Hannah Williams & The Affirmations. Recorded at Quatermass Studio in London - the HQ of the British cult band The Heliocentrics, the new album has been produced by legendary UK drummer and producer Malcolm Catto. Alongside the Heliocentric albums on Now Again / Stones Throw, Malcolm is responsible for producing great albums such as "Inspiration Information" by Mulatu Astatke, "Jaiyede Afro" by Orlando Julius and "The Last Transmission" by Melvin Van Peebles. So a new producer and a new life for Hannah; who is also now backed by the Affirmations, her new super tight band from Bristol - who will be touring the record too. The musicianship has ramped up several gears since Hannah's first album; bringing a welcome flare of excellence which punctuates Hannah's heartbreaking vocals and embraces Malcolm's tight, psychedelic production. Mixed totally analogue, and mastered on tape, "Late Nights & Heartbreak" includes 13 tracks of visceral soul with a touch of psychedelic atmosphere.

Genre:Organic Grooves
nspiration for the LP, is the musical experimentation that has happened at Studio Lam, and how that has influenced our sound, whether it's the alternative nights featuring individual band members (Paradise Bangkok Rhythm Section, Kammao & friends, Electric Piphat Band) or sets from other artists and DJs like Andrew Ashong, Miles Cleret, Hugo Mendez, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Rabih Beaini, Kirk Degiorgio, and Phuong Dan. The fact that Studio Lam has become a musical focal point for city of Bangkok, has inevitably had an impact on the band itself, and this is reflected in the presence of different vibes and styles of the LP. The sound of 'Planet Lam' has been shaped by late night jamming gigs, home made ya-dong, run ins with the police, and the swapping of ideas with like minded local musicians and artists.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Staten Island is both close enough to New York City and far enough away to make it easily the most exotic of the 5 boroughs. Rza from WuTang Clan attributes the uniqueness of the Wu to it’s Hip Hop contemporaries at the time to just that dynamic. Growing up on an island that is neighbors with the capital of the world, but has no bridges to it, no trains or tunnels, only a ferry, turns out to be the perfect recipe to give a New York band a unique take on the energy of the city. Paul Schalda, the bandleader, singer and songwriter of Paul & The Tall Trees is from Staten Island.One part of a crazily talented musical family, Paul’s music seems to embody the unexpected overlap of The Band’s Americana, Ian MacKaye’s unhinged emotion, Otis Redding’s raw, warm soul, and the doo-wop melodies his father, Bill Schalda Sr. (a member of Brooklyn vocal group, The Montereys) raised him on.On Paul & The Tall Trees’ debut album “Our Love In The Light” you hear the sum of his experiences. This singular sound is helped by the fact that his father, William Schalda, Sr., and brother, Will Schalda Jr., play on and inspire the record. The album was written entirely by Paul, and produced by another Staten Island native, Thomas Brenneck of Charles Bradley, Menahan Street Band, and Budos Band fame. The combination of the two gives the record an amazing sonic range, from the powerhouse rocker “Crack Of Down” to the ethereal western vibes of “She Comes Around”. Paul pens a tune about the forever changing conviction of a man in love on “Once In A While”, and ironically “The Little Bit Of Sunshine”, is a story about Paul giving up on a career in music. One thing you hear in Schalda’s music, no matter which song, is that the road hasn’t been easy. His voice can be hauntingly harsh, yet hopeful and tender, raucous and gravelly one moment, smooth and intimate the next.

Rachel Modest made her debut for ATA Records last year with her a version of "I, Who Have Nothing" that was recorded for the label's free download series "Hard Work, No Pay", and received support and airplay from Craig Charles and Wah Wah 45's Dom Servini. Later in the year she co-wrote and guested on the debut 45 by The Magnificent Tape Band ("Patterns In My Mind") that received support and airplay from Gilles Peterson & Dom servini and was featured as mpfree of the week on Lauren Laverne's BBC6 Music show where it was described as "Al Green meets Portishead"."I Try/Forbidden Love" is her solo debut for the label and both tracks were produced during the sessions for her upcoming solo LP. As with all the releases from ATA Records the tracks were co-written with the heads of the Label Neil Innes and Pete Williams, who were also behind the debut album by The Sorcerers as well as The Magnificent Tape Band and Joe Tatton Trio singles released earlier in the year. Inviting inevitable comparisons to the recent releases from Daptone Records, "I Try" is a soulful mid-tempo track that draws its influences from the likes of Dee Dee Warwick, Ann Peebles, Madeline Bell and Dusty Springfield. Creeping guitar & bass and the understated backing vocals of the verse make way for the uplifting chorus and Rachel's soaring vocal performance. "Forbidden Love" is a darker track that acts as the perfect foil for her powerful vocal performance and a suitable contrast to the A side.

Genre:Organic Grooves
The wait is over, „Return To The 37th Chamber” is El Michels Affair’s highly anticipated follow up to 2009's underground cult classic “Enter the 37th Chamber”. Churning out classic records since then for the likes of Lee Fields, The Arcs, The Shacks, and tons more, it is clear that EMA's signature sound is stronger & sharper than ever.This time, in addition to re-interpreting the Wu compositions for a live band, EMA pays homage to the production and sonic fog that makes a RZA beat so recognizable. Producer and bandleader Leon Michels recorded the album completely analog, sometimes hitting 6 generations of tape before it was ready for mixing, giving the “Return to The 37th Chamber” it’s own hazy sound. Adding to the unique fidelity, the record is laced with psychedelic flourishes, “John Carpenter” synths, heavy metal guitars, triumphant horns, and traditional Chinese instruments that make up for the lack of the Wu’s superlative vocals. From start to finish it’s a dark trip that walks the line between RZA’s timeless hip-hop aesthetic and the cinematic soul EMA has become known for.El Michels Affair tackles some classics like “4th Chamber” and “Wu Tang Aint Nuthin to Fuck Wit”, as well as some deeper cuts like Ol Dirty Bastard’s “Snakes”, Raekwon’s “Verbal Intercourse”, and “Shaolin Brew”, Wu-Tang’s contribution to the St. Ide’s Hip Hop endorsement campaign from 1994. This time El Michels brings some of the Big Crown family along for the ride. Lee Fields handles vocal duties on “Snakes” and is joined by Shannon Wise of The Shacks for their version of “Tearz”, which pays as much homage to the Wendy Rene sample as it does to the Wu-Tang Clan. Lady Wray makes an appearance on the cover of Method Man’s hit, “All I Need”, lending her vocal prowess to what gave the Wu one of their biggest hits of all time. Interspersed throughout the record are some original interludes that are like the “rug that ties the room together,” giving “Return To The 37th Chamber” a cinematic narrative that makes it a proper El Michels Affair record and not just a collection of covers.The vinyl version of “Return To The 37th Chamber” is presented with 4 different hand painted covers. The originals were painted on two sewn together flour sacks in Accra, Ghana by Heavy J and Stoger, two artists who are legends in the Ghanaian Mobile Cinema scene and regular contributors to the Deadly Prey Gallery’s collection in Chicago.From the music to the presentation, this album is a perfect example of what can only be achieved through diversity. The end result is as much a kaleidoscope of influences and multiculturalism as the city it was recorded in. El Michels Affair is once again, “Sounding Out The City” that raised them, pulling elements of art and culture from across the country and around the globe to create an album truly unique in its own right.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Three years after their first 7-inch release, Melbourne’s most elusive soul project Zillanova step out of the shadows with “The Fader”, a darkly sensual cut featuring a true revelation – the voice of Joshua Tavares. Bringing to mind both Donny and Marvin, Zillanova’s new frontman is the youngest son of a singing family, his brother Cisco a luminary of soul music in Australia, and his uncles the voices of Tavares, undisputed gods of 70s Disco.This song is not disco though. “The Fader” is a dark horse, riding on a dark and funky pocket with a Latin tinge and shades of gospel. It’s a bit 70’s and a bit now – equal parts What’s Going On and Alabama Shakes. Lyrically, “The Fader” is an ode to departed loved ones and their ongoing presence in our lives. The chorus, ”we all fade away” is a reminder of our own mortality.

"Space Patrol" ("Raumpatrouille - Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion") was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD TV, the first one being aired on September 17, 1966. Being a huge success with audience ratings up to 56%, the series acquired a distinct cult status in Germany and worldwide.Peter Thomas composed and recorded the original score, which has become a soundtrack classic and collector's item among rare groove afficionados since its original release on Philips. The music, floating between avantgarde jazz, big band beat and spaced-out psychedelia, set a new benchmark in the history of film music and science fiction scores and became one of Thomas' best known works. The title theme is the first known piece of music in pop history to feature a vocoder, a device that until then had exclusively been used for voice encoding in military warfare. Peter Thomas borrowed a device from the Siemens factory to process his voice for the recording of the countdown. The composer remembers: "When producing the score, I had complete creative freedom. No one had ever been into space, so no one would dare to tell me how the music should sound like."Now, 50 years on, The Mighty Mocambos teamed up with the legendary musical mastermind a recorded an up to date, truly global and funky 2016 version in tribute of the original theme. "Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille)" is the only official recording of the track released for this anniversary and authorized by Peter Thomas, who even plays on it himself. To give this 50 years version a new twist, the specially formed Mocambo Astronautic Sound Orchestra adds steel band orchestration to the massive brass and funky rhythm section.

Ever order a kale salad and discover a neckbone in it? That's funk. Ever written a love letter on a chicken grease-stained napkin? That's funk. The Du-Rites are without a doubt the soundtrack to both of those situations, but by definition, The Du-Rites are a duo of New Yorkbased multi-instrumentalists comprised of Pablo Martin (guitar, bass, synthesizer) and J-Zone (drums, organ, bass, turntables, percussion instruments that require little skill). With influences ranging from the obvious (Booker T. & The MGs, Lalo Schifrin, Cameo, Kool and the Gang, The Meters, Jimi Hendrix, P-Funk, Motown, Herbie Hancock, and James Brown) to the obscure (overlooked late '60s funk bands Warm Excursion, TSU Toronadoes, and Willie & The Mighty Magnificents), The Du-Rites manage to bounce from improvisational, raggedy and psychedelic to tight and snappy with the skip of a track. Pablo's proficiency in punk, disco, pop and Latin and J-Zone's deep roots in hip-hop and jazz-funk combine to make one of the more off-kilter, but undeniably funky instrumental long players you'll dig into.

TV and film soundtracks were often the work of absolute masters of their art - such as US legends Lalo Schiffrin & Quincy Jones, and their Uk counterparts Ronnie Hazelhurst and Alan Hawkshaw, provided the soundtrack to the 60, 70's and 80's at a time when film and TV music was unashamedly groovy and featured the ensemble of choice for the jazz arranger: The Big Band! The Andy Tolman Cartel captures the spirit and musical excitement of that style with a collection of epic tunes, composed, arranged and recorded for Big Band by bass player, composer and bon viveur, Andy Tolman and produced by the projects drummer, Nick Van Gelder.As a tantalising taster of the sounds encompassed within the forthcoming full length album Cypher - this absolute kicking single kicks off with a thundering, stomping cover version of Janis Joplins' Move Over - with award winning singer Jo Harman on vocal duties (Jo recently hit the BBC Radio 2 playlist with her own single When We Were Young which features the Doobie Brothers Michael McDonald as special guest) The flipside - album title track Cypher - contrastingly is a brilliant, spy movie style scorcher with disco flourishes - banks of blazing horns, squelchy synthesizers, super tight drums all coalesce into the greatest soundtrack currently searching for a TV show to be the theme for!

Soul Clap Records’ New Directions In Funk is back with a double A-Side 7" of that electronic funk to get you ridin’… After selling out of 500 records of the first edition, round two is another 500 record limited run on purple vinyl. One side features rising Sao Paolo electronic wizard Zopelar who brings us a smooth out bedroom jam called "Hold You (Like The Music)" featuring Serge Erege on vocals, while the flip is Boston’s favorite funk band, The Nephrok! Allstars with "Ride It” for those booties. Zopelar’s "Hold You (Like The Music)” is as romantic as it gets. With a popish line and a raw mix that makes you imagine you are listening to some obscure backing tracks from an old hidden tape, it features the singer Serge Erege, who added incredible vocals and lyrics to the instrumental version. Hold You is the single from Zopelar’s forthcoming cassette album release “EGG” on Soul Clap Records. EGG shows a very intimate side of the producer, revealing much of his background and clearly presenting his later works as Sphynx (aka Zopelar and Marcio Vermelho) and his own label "In Their Feelings”. It’s a trip to the origins of home recording, rescuing the pure sense of the act of making music.Originally featured on our Dancing on The Charles Vol. 3 compilation last year, Ride It is an instant classic that demanded to get on wax. A throwback to the days of that Summer jam that would light the party or club on fire and get every soul up on the dance floor as soon as the DJ put the needle to the record and the sultry opening chords pulsed from the speakers. Written by Nephrok!, Brew from House of Vibe (LA), and Aaron and Amy Bellamy (The A-Beez) it was produced by Nephrok! as a culmination of influences ranging from Prince, D'Angelo, and P-Funk to a perfect combination of West Coast swagger and East Coast Soul, ....it was, is, and will be a banger for a long time.

Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Essentially, the history of British soul music is a long story about the search for identity. With his third album "Just Being Me", Ghana born singer, songwriter, producer, designer, musician and cinematographer Myles Sanko adds an essential chapter to this eventful journey. Featuring eleven new compositions, "Just Being Me" explores the inner self and transcends stylistic borders. With its rich instrumentation and colourful arrangement it speaks out as loud as a proper soul album should."For me, music is the key to communication between people. When I write, play and sing music, I do not plan it to be labelled 'soul' or 'jazz' - it just comes naturally as it is," Myles Sanko explains. With his true, emotional and straightforward style, he is able to connect past, present and future. "Of course I am inspired by the classic sounds of the Sixties and Seventies coming out of Detroit, Memphis or Philadelphia. But I grew up in the middle of the English countryside. We had no ghetto or deal with social unrest in the streets. Nevertheless, when you grow up coming from a mixed racial background into a conservative society, you need to develop a strategy of survival." One key element of this strategy was to take business in his very own hands. Myles Sanko recorded his debut mini album "Born In Black & White" in 2013. Without any distribution or marketing it sold so well that Myles instantly knew he was on to something good. "My fans crowd funded the recording of my second album 'Forever Dreaming'. That was amazing, even Gregory Porter invited me to join him as support. The band I toured with became my family."With "Just Being Me" Myles Sanko is coming home now. "This album is about love, hope and politics, and has a piece of me in every part," read the liner notes and you can't deny the truth in these words. Starting with "Freedom", a Donny Hathaway style instrumental prologue, the album flows seamlessly into the title track. "Promises" is what soul is about: Don't believe the hype, have a look what's behind empty promises. "This Ain't Living" is accompanied by some of the most delicate orchestral soul-jazz this side of Matthew Halsall or Cinematic Orchestra. "The Sunshine" is where it's at, a quiet celebration of the love for the sun. "Land Of Paradise" carries a message of hope and confidence in the lyrics, led by a hypnotizing brass section, think Gil Scott-Heron or the Last Poets walking through the streets of Manchester or London: "I Belong To You" looks back on classic, era-spanning soul ballad artistry, think Bill Withers teaming up with Maxwell and you are quite near. "Forget Me Not" stays firmly in up-to-date R&B idioms. "Missing You" brings down "Just Being Me" in an Bobby Womack style, acoustic soul, while "Empty Road" is an emotive ending to a wonderful story."Just Being Me' is a departure from what I did before and a beginning of a new journey. It is about myself as a human being, as it is about sharing between each other," concludes Myles Sanko. "What is it that you can do as a songwriter or musician? You have the ultimate tool that you can share with others, as recorded music or on the stage. As an artist you can make the most of this rare gift "

Big drums? Check. Slinky groove? Check. Huge horns? Check. A killer vocal from one of the voices of her generation? Oh yes! 'Take You Home' is Lack of Afro doing what he does best - combining the funk-filled old & the soul-soaked new to devastating effect. On the vox is Grammy award winner Joss Stone, delivering the kind of vocal that Aretha herself would be proud of! On the flip-side is 'Fires Glow' - one of the most popular tracks from the new album 'Hello Baby', and featuring a rising star of the soul & mod scene: dancer, model, singer (and LOA Records recording artist) Emma Noble. Combining infectious piano by George Cooper, upfront drums courtesy of Lack of Afro himself, some Burt Bacharach-esque horns from Jamie Cullum band-member Rory Simmons & an insanely catchy melody, 'Fires Glow' is simply soulful music at its finest.'Take You Home' is the second single taken from the critically acclaimed new album 'Hello Baby', a genre-busting colossus of an record that has received huge radio support from the likes of Jo Whiley (BBC Radio 2), Craig Charles (Radio 2 & 6 Music), Lauren Laverne & Cerys Matthews (both 6 Music). The Lack of Afro live band were also invited to Media City by Craig Charles in May to do a live session for his Funk & Soul Show, with Adam also contributing one of the most popular 'Trunk of Funk' mixes that the show has ever had! 'Hello Baby' has also broken into the Top 10 of the iTunes R&B/Soul charts in over 13 countries worldwide.

Release:2016 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Big Crown Records presents the debut single from Paul & The Tall Trees, “Once In A While” b/w “The Little Bit Of Sunshine”. Hailing from Staten Island, Paul Schalda’s music seems to embody the unexpected overlap of The Band’s Americana, Ian MacKaye's unhinged emotion, and the doo-wop melodies his father, Bill Schalda Sr. (a member of Brooklyn vocal group, The Montereys), raised him on. The first single from his forthcoming full length, produced by Tommy Brenneck, “Once In A While” is a testament to Paul’s sincere and raw emotional song writing. Running the gamut of the forever changing conviction of a man in love, Paul goes from never again to maybe pleading for mercy on his soul. Musically going from a mellow strut to a frantic crescendo carrying the lyrics along for the ups and downs of addiction. The B Side “The Little Bit Of Sunshine” is the soul tearing admission of defeat and the long road to surrender. Easily interpreted as a story about a disfunctional relationship with a unkind, inconsiderate woman, yet truly a story about Paul’s giving up on a career in music.

Leuven, Belgium, based producer FRIS, makes synthy, low-slung beats that sit somewhere between hip hop and funky up-tempo music. He gathered big influences from the LA beat scene that let him play around with the SP404 in order to come up with his own unique style. His first cassette-project Frissen EP came out in 2013, a cracky, lo-fi sample-based beat sound that found the likes of no less a figure than the great LeFtO. U Hungry? rides on shaky, crackly, lo-fi SP404 sound; Richly-textured, minimalist but complex; resulting in a hazy, dreamlike feel. The tape is a collection of beats made over the past few years. Each track is a patchwork of lush samples blended together to create warm, sun-drenched little charmers. Bon appétit.

Yoruba Records takes us on a new journey with a new sub label Yoruba Soul, dedicated to all things non house. To begin our journey we called upon our brother and long time friend Miles Bonny, who brings a gritty soul Ep "I Bring You Love". This release takes the listener into a smoke filled room where spirits float around. The elements of distortion, dirty kick drums and snares shape the sound of this Ep taking us to a world between rituals and 90's Boom Bap. Bonny Emerges From the studio with a warm yet haunting offering. The title track "I Bring You Love" quickly sets the tone for the release. Featuring lyrics that cut into the soul with echoing vocals. Themes of romance, pain, and healing carry throughout the 4 songs on this soon to be Yoruba Classic. The production throughout this release bends the genre's of Jazz, Soul, Electro, and Hip Hop into one awesome sound, filled with glitches and thumping kick drums. Miles Bonny sings, chants, and speaks to the listener with his lyrics which reflect on the existence of ones own internal voices. The song "Don't Deny The God Inside You" holds true to this, with Bonny chanting a call and response between the voices that speak to our consciousness. "I Bring You Love", is the perfect soundtrack for those late nights of roaming a busy city as you seek to connect to the internal spirit. This is sure to be one of those releases that you keep on repeat and the lyrics and product transform listening into a meditative journey. We hope you enjoy this mystic release as much as we do.

His music is filled with fusion style, mixing influences and elements from his Latin musical background, with his genuine admiration for Jazz, Soul and Funk music. In spring 2015, it was also not surprising to find Lucas Arruda back with a new LP called SOLAR, receiving great supports and feedbacks from international medias and tastemakers. One of the highlight of SOLAR was the track “Melt the Night”, on which Lucas asked legendary producer Leon Ware for his help, reminding his collaborations in the 80s with Marcos Valle, when they perfectly merged together the sophisticated Boogie and AOR touch from California, with the blazing sense of rhythm from Brazil. Willing to enlighten even more this timeless song, which could easily be produced in the early-mid 80s, Favorite Recordings decided to give it a brand new suit and found the perfect tailor with Nu-Funk raising producer, XL Middleton. Part of the modern-funk movement and based in Pasadena, XL has released volumes of work, the sound of which embodies the party feel, bringing music back to where it was before it found its way into upscale clubs, while at the same time mixing it with a futuristic brand of funk inspired by legends such as George Clinton, Roger Troutman, or Morris Day. The result is a stunning remix, bringing “Melt the Night” into a futuristic Boogie-Funk world with massive basslines and heavy beats!! This great vinyl 12inch comes with Original and Instrumental Versions on the B-Side, to finalize a perfect package for DJs and diggers.

It’s been some years since the first Karl Hector release, and it’s known now that Mr. Hector is indeed the German producer and guitarist JJ Whitefield, ne Jan Weissenfeldt. Whitefield is the visionary behind the Poets of Rhythm and the Whitefield Brothers, the ensembles whose rough analog sound and return to the funk archetypes of the late 60s to early 70s paved the way for labels like Daptone, Truth & Soul, Timmion. "Unstraight Ahead" finds the band exploring territories even outside of the expansive scope of Sahara Swing. On this album, the West African sounds of Ghana and Mali meet the East African sounds of Mulatu Astatke’s Ethiopian jazz and are tied together with the groove heavy experimentalism of The Malcouns’ 70s Krautrock godfathers: Can, of course, but also more obscure and equally adventurous groups like Agitation Free, Ibliss and Tomorrow’s Gift.

Co-founder, writer and drummer of Soulive for over 15 years, Alan Evans proudly presents his newest creation, Alan Evans Trio: an inspiring and fresh organ trio lineup. Enlisting the support of good friends and talented players Danny Mayer on guitar (On the Spot Trio), and Beau Sasser (Melvin Sparks, Akashic Record) the trio's sound proves hard-driving and groovy with deep, funky melodies and powerful, rhythmic counterplay. Alan Evans Trio opens a window into another side -an emotional introspection, as dark as it is powerful. Their passionate progressions emanate an electrified, smoky, 70s-era CTI Records zeitgeist. Alan Evans Trio's much-anticipated follow-up album, Merkaba, is the perfect road trip album for the everyday space traveler, and will take listeners on a cosmic funk adventure. With spacey Hammond organ overlays, zero-gravity guitar riffs, and the rocket powered beats of legendary drummer Alan Evans (Soulive), the Alan Evans Trio follow up album to the critically acclaimed Drop Hop, invites listeners to experience an interstellar musical voyage as deep as space itself.Produced, recorded, and mixed by the legendary drummer of Soulive, Alan Evans also contributed musically to nearly every instrument on the album. Additionally, Merkaba features special guest traveler and luminary hip hop guitarist, Mike Feingold (Jay-Z, Erykah Badu), on banjo, guitar, and keyboard.In a message sent from the future, Alan Evans comments on Merkaba, “I can't wait for everyone and anyone to hear this album. This album is all of me. This album is for the loves of my life and there are songs on here that I never thought would see the light of day but the alignment of the universe made the timing just perfect!”
