New Release: Jack Davey – ‘L0-F! D’Lux’

 

We’ve been following the build up to this Jack Davey release for a minute now, which has included a couple of our favorite tracks, “Eye Can See” and “Howl At The Moon.” The electro-soul front woman notoriously ripped stages and hearts with her work as the front woman of J*Davey, and just the same, she evokes powerful emotion in this new lo-fi rock project.

Recorded in the closet of her Los Angeles home, Jack took her creative endeavors entirely into her own hands after giving birth to her first child in 2011. L0-F! D’Lux is the culmination of the previously released sides A and B along with three bonus tracks and a digi-book. Side A included Jack completely solo with her drum machine, self-taught guitar chops, and her voice, while Side B introduced production collaboration from her boyfriend Joey Strat of The Knux.

As we all know, the history of sampling in hip hop can go pretty deep. Here is a film about the people you “always heard but never heard of.” In 1973, a politician, a gangster, a visionary, a football legend, and a murderer’s path’s intersected to birth the most unlikely source of music.

The documentary features interviews from Questlove, Afrika Bambaataa, and others.

Watch the trailer for Sample This above and gear up for what sounds like one hell of a ride.
