Te'Amir is one of LA's bright beacons of rhythm. In addition to being a master drummer/percussionist (Aloe Blacc/Ethio Cali), Te'Amir is making some fresh beats with influences from Brazil and Africa. Ballaké shows how clever Te'Amir can chop up some Guinean love.
LA's music scene is blowing up with musical talent and The Edison Electrics are a fine example. Consisting of an impressive crew of musicians, Godfrey at Large (aka Dustin Warren) leads them into spacious and expressive layers of musical soul. *be sure to peep Yekermo Sew (Te'Amir Remix) for a fresh take on ethio-jazz w/ Warren's masterful vocal work.
Puro Show is already on my Summer playlist (it's still March)! I appreciate how the track stays calm and cool. It seems like most contemporary Tropical productions are over-layered with rhythm and ego. Not here... kudos El Combo Chimbita!
