The beauty of the Analog Players Society is the impressive array of artists that comprise the collective. Led by Amon, who's who musicians from around the Brooklyn music scene jumped in on this project. Players include members from TV On The Radio, Tortured Soul, Escort, Beirut, Si*Se, Blitz the Ambassador and Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble.
The sounds are a colorful medley of funk, afrobeat, soul, and dub. Yum. Stream the entire project below and enjoy!
Producer, engineer, and percussionist Amon (Turntables on the Hudson) leads the Analog Players Society, a collective and community of musicians rooted at The Hook Studio in Brooklyn, NY. Judging from their music, vibrance is at the helm. Today, the collective releases their Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 7" projects, both of which you can stream tracks from below!
We particularly fancy the rework of the 1986 hit song "I Can't Wait" by Nu Shooz featuring the magnificent Cecilia Stalin (Koop) over a full horn section
Free for download is Vince Guaraldi's classic "Christmas Time Is Here." Enjoy!
Watch their performance at Southpaw after the jump.
