Carl Craig: 'At Les' Versus Edit Version

Carl Craig's latest release is a reinvention of a track from 1997's 'More Songs About Food And Revolutionary Art'.  Behold the Versus edit of 'At Les', a song Craig created while watching across the river from Detroit.  The song has evolved through time and takes on a cinematic element with this new instrumentation.  The song is performed alongside Xavier Roth, Les Siècles and Francesco Tristano in this new incarnation.  The track is available here.

Madlib's 2016 RBMA NYC Lecture!

 If you have an hour to play with today, find a way to absorb this fascinating chat between Chairman Mao and the Beatkonducta Madlib at the recent Red Bull Music Academy in New York City. This is a remarkable look at one of the most prolific and creative music producers of all time, his process, what matters to him, and so much more. Amazing!
