PREMIERE: Mark de Clive-Lowe “#BlueNoteRemixed Vol. 1” ft. Illa J, John Robinson, Bambu, and More

Kiwi broken beat pioneer Mark de Clive-Lowe is back with yet another smash up of flavors and funk. From the title, it should be obvious this project is a tribute to seminal jazz label Blue Note Records. However, unlike many other Blue Note remixes you’ve heard before, this 44-minute mixtape is live and improvised… and better yet, recorded in one take! Those familiar with his live show will know this is how MdCL do. Throughout #BlueNoteRemixed Vol. 1 we are treated to samples and interpolations of Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, and Donald Byrd classics. And seeing as these joints have been the backbone of some of your favourite hip hop records of all time, you will likely be humming along or singing hooks out loud. The icing on the cake is some slick verses from emcees Illa J, John Robinson, and Bambu, as well as contributions from songstress Nia Andrews, bassist Pino Palladino, and saxophonist Nomad Pendergrass. Let me stop typing and let you get to grooving out to this music that’s perfect for the last dog days of summer. Listen below or download the mix at Marc’s site.

Mark de Clive-Lowe will be playing the Common Culture: Across the Water show in L.A. this Sunday, September 18th at The Ford Theatres. Other artists performing include Nia Andrews, Chloe x Halle, Jungle Fire, Brit Manor, and special guests. Click here for more info and tickets.
