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.

Karriem Riggins - Bahia Dreamin'

 We can't stop pressing play on the new video from the brilliant Karriem Riggins. The visuals are perfect for the exceptionally soulful and laid back music, courtesy of one of today's most exciting composers.

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!

Saqqara Mastabas(Matthew Friedberger of Fiery Furnaces & Bob D'Amico of Sebadoh) 'UTO On The Upswing'

 The cool thing about this track, is that it's completely bonkers! This very cool super duo have joined sonic forces to go completely insane, and we can't wait for the whole record.
