Three-time Grammy-winner Robert Glasper and the super-talented, innovative producer Kaytranada join forces on The ArtScience Remixes, an 8-track EP that reimagines the songs on the former’s acclaimed 2016 album. With the project now available to stream or download, extra scavenger-like audiophiles will have the chance to cop a physical version of this effort as a Record Store Day vinyl exclusive on April 21.
The Robert Glasper Experiment, which contains saxophonist and vocalist Casey Benjamin, bassist Derrick Hodge, drummer Mark Colenburg, and Glasper on keys, getting back to the essence of their sound, while splitting duties and responsibilities. The talented foursome each delivered vocals, shared in the production and even wrote individual songs on the original album.
Kaytranada’s inclusion helped to mix up the colors and textures on an already acclaimed project.
“Kaytranada is super inventive and musically brave,” says Glasper via press release. “He goes places with the music where most won’t go! Working with him is always so much fun and creatively inspiring.” The ArtScience Remixes contain cameos by some of the game’s most elite: Iman Omari, Don Cheadle, Talib Kweli, and Alex Isley. Together, with Kaytranada own unique sounds, they take the Experiment’s trailblazing blend of sonics into new and beautiful realms.
Glasper continues to be busy as of late. His collaborative project, August Greene, with Common and Karriem Riggins has been doing well. And his newest band R+R=NOW with Terrace Martin, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Derrick Hodge, Taylor McFerrin, and Justin Tyson just finished recording their debut album which will be released this summer.
