This trippy DJ Jazzy Jeff and James Poyser remix of Moonchild's "Be Free" is taking us to alternate dimensions. Love the slinky, warpy treatment juxtaposed with jazzy horns. We need more of this, stat.
Los Angeles trio Moonchild releases the jazzy and low-key "Don't Wake Me." Look out for their new album this fall.
Super excited about this new Sonic Boom Vol. 3 that our lady Maiya Norton has masterfully compiled for us this month. It includes some of our favorite jams from the last couple months, including a nice dose of music unlikely on folks' radars.
The buzz building Denitia and Sene are featured, the venerable Shafiq Husayn shares some love, Wondaland's newest artist Roman Gianarthur contributes his latest single, and MED's much loved "Burgundy Whip" with Blu and Jimetta Rose is yet another treat on this free release.
Then we've got artists like Ikaz doing a ridiculous flip of Frank Ocean's "Pyramids," Philly producer Aeon going in on the sultry Sade sampled "GoodbyeLove," and LIPS gives a totally huggable performance covering Frank Ocean's "Super Rich Kids."
London based DJ Sinden comes into GPWW this week with a jazz mix and various worldly styles. But first our man Gilles starts with some recent favorites: Prommer & Barck, Gil Scott-Heron remixed by Jamie XX, Cubic Ziconia, DJ Oil and more. Sinden brings a lot to the World Wide mixtape, including Moonchild, Nico Gomez & His Afro Percussion, Lutchiana, Donso & more. So before GPWW presents us with the 2010 All Winners set, listen to the Sinden Jazz Mix to explore a bit of what's left out there.
