Album Watch: Robert Glasper Recovers and Remixes 'Black Radio'

Friday, October 5, 2012

A remix has to be of a certain breed for me to really stand and salute towards as (and I've said this in the past on this blog), that life is too short for me to wade through a gabillion remixes of one song when only two and three of them are worth a damn.

So when I caught wind that Robert Glasper was releasing a remix companion to his exceptional Black Radio project, I admit that I sort of just whistled on by it. Then I kept seeing such great names attached to the refashions, that well, I caved, and have come away totally refreshed on the idea of remix projects.

This time acts like Georgia Anne Muldrow, The Roots, Solange, Pete Rock, Black Milk, and Phonte, along with Yasiin Bey rejoining, have a presence on on this six-track EP, and they all fuel the fire with Glasper's tunes in re-dressed grandeur. Really of note is Solange and The Roots doing Little Dragon's "Twice" some justice, and their rendition (one that surprisingly saw the cutting room floor during the Black Radio sessions) is nine-minutes of sultry heaven that you can just snuggle up into and drift away on.

Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP will be released October 9th, which on that date, bliss will be in aural form.

    1. I mirror your excitement. I usually side-step remix projects, but I'm sold on this one!
