It has been a real long minute since the last post, but no need to delay and let’s get to the music! Sly5thAve, out of Brooklyn, just dropped his new album The Invisible Man which is an orchestral tribute to Dr. Dre. Sly5thAve’s release is probably the freshest album I have heard this year. While there have been lost of tribute albums dropping this year, The Invisible Man is unique in that it includes different elements from the classical orchestra sound, jazz rhythms, and the vocals on the tracks are on point. Sly5thAve arranges all these various sounds flawlessly while still staying true to the original. Don’t sleep and go cop this album!
I know we are in the thick of the Christmas season, don’t let the stress get to you. Step back and relax, just have a coffee and listen to some great music. Well just go grab the coffee, DJM Trio has given you the great music. The live band just dropped their new album Cave Art. The talented band has recreated and reinterpreted some classic hiphop jams, the covers range from Pete Rock’s T.R.O.Y. to Jurassic 5’s Great expectations and there are many more gems. The live instrumentation brings the sound and rhythms to a whole new level, the trio’s layering and fills of the tracks almost create completely new songs. I listened to the first track and then immediately bought the album. Don’t sleep on this album!
