New release on Rockwell by my homie Lex (de Kalhex) for all of you that dig these laid back, floating Samurai Champloo vibez … Two super smooth and organic cosmic jazz hip hop fusion tracks with a nice 6 pages folded poster artwork by Alex Besikian himself. Check his tumbl for updates on drawings and illustrations: http://alex-besikian.tumblr.com and get more info about the record via the-find-mag.
“Changing Child”, a very complex multilayered and yet out-balanced production with legendary Segawa Tatsuya on the trumpet makes me imagine myself on the beach on a hot summer day, looking into liquified landscapes, generated by a curtain of hot air. Amazing journey.
“Blue Nile” takes me back to watching Samurai Champloo, blossoming cherry trees, soft winds, cloud scattered blue skies. A continuation of hist last full length Lp “Full Cycle”.
Great work and full support! Rockwell btw is a label created by Takumi Koizumi, one of the main guys behind legendary Hydeout label (Nujabes) back in the days.
