SHIGETO DRUMS, MACHINES
Shigeto's music opens a poetical world made of intimate atmospheres that call to mind. Rerouting the electro routine, this excellent drummer dynamites the ice cold game of playing with machines by his percussive presence.
Coming from Detroit, Shigeto creates a spiritual musical setting waving from hip-hop to house music with much bowing towards Jazz. Each piece produces a rich polyrhythm wrapped around some electronic piano's melodic lines, discreet synthetic bell sounds and subtle electronic tones. Music seems like slipping towards the land of dreams and memory ...
INVINCIBLE + DJ WAAJEED
INVINCIBLE MC, VOICE + DJ WAAJEED
Invincible's soft yet trenchant flow wraps itself around rhymes inspired by everyday life scenes. Invincible lends her voice to the people of Detroit who are facing a merciless economic breakdown. Invincible takes part in new collective actions, in social and political change projects. Invincible talks about it in Invincible songs, sometimes influenced by the Afro-futurism of Octavia Butler.
Talib Kweli says: "Invincible is one of the more talented MCs I have ever met."
Also from Detroit, Waajeed brings his DJ science, a mastery in musical construction that strengthens the deliberate protest of the indomitable, uncompromising Invincible and the ones Invincible represents.
