Revive Music x Boiler Room Premiere ‘Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1’ Live from NYC
Revive Music joins live streaming giant Boiler Room to present exclusive footage of the September 2015 album release concert for the Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1 LP. A byproduct of Revive’s momentous partnership with Blue Note Records, the inaugural release captures the magic of the storied events that have placed the label at the helm of a sea change in live music. Revive and Boiler Room debut the clip of their first collaborative venture starring Slingbaum, which features Cory Henry, Keyon Harrold and Marcus Strickland.
In celebration of a new partnership that ditches the traditional club model to host performances at alternative venues and in the digital space, the second event in the series head to Queens, New York to explore the intersection of jazz and hip-hop for Terrace Martin: Live At MoMA PS 1 on Sunday, January 31st. Terrace Martin and his band will perform live at the MoMA Sunday Sessions event, which also features DJ Raydar Ellis spinning jazz throughout the show. The performance will be accompanied by a 30-minute conversation with the seven-time Grammy nominated producer, moderated by Revive’s founder Meghan Stabile.
With another Revive x Boiler Room effort on the verge, we reached out to Terrace Martin to get his thoughts about performing with Revive in front of the MoMa PS1 audience. “The experience is something that [audiences will] have and instantly become a part of a moment that [no one] will ever get again,” the To Pimp a Butterfly producer told Okayplayer exclusively. “The artists, the musicians and the audience are sharing in a time where everyone is equal at the same moment and time and that’s agape love.”
To put it plainly, the music will be the biggest ego in the room.
For those who won’t be in the Tri-State area, yet want to not be left behind on one of the biggest names in music — the second installment of the Revive x Boiler Room collaboration will be live streamed for your home-viewing pleasure. It’s not the same, in our opinion, but according to Terrace Martin, “Streaming live is the closest thing to being there. You can get a sense of the energy in the room, even if you can’t be in it to feel it,” he told us via e-mail. “Sometimes it’s hard to dig in when you know a camera is right there during that time of transition, but the moment passes. At the end of the day, streaming live is a great way to share that energy with a bigger audience and still feel intimate.”
