New Release: Mark de Clive-Lowe – ‘Renegades’

 

Our friend Mark de Clive-Lowe this week released his ninth studio album, Renegades. Hopefully you heard his bright and shiny track with Nia Andrews called “The Why.” In addition to the lovely miss Nia, the album boasts appearances from the much loved Omar, Sheila E, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson.

Mark shares about his approach to blending recording styles and genre, “My whole thing with this kind of production is balancing electronics and programming with organic and live musicianship. I love for that line to be blurred almost to the point where you don’t know which is which.”

And now that you’re all topsy-turvy with anticipation, enjoy a full stream of the album below before you buy!

GPWW 8/9/10: Hypnotic Brass Ensemble Feature

Despite the bad weather which kept us off the rooftop, we were very grateful for Gilles Petersons secret performance at NYC Soho House on Sunday; he played a killer set and naturally got the crowd moving. If you too want to be included in the hippest swanky events, always featuring quality music, follow our tweets for exclusive event entrances, plus crafty art and vinyl contests. 

This week on GPWW, Gilles Peterson features the words and sounds of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Their interview reveals a lot about the group: from their introduction to brass instruments and what they’ve been through to what’s next for them as a band. The first part of the show is mostly old favorites interspersed with brand new music from artists like Nia Andrews and Marcos Valle.
