Incredible. So many things to love about this Robert Glasper Experiment remix which hit the webs today, I could spend the whole write-up just rhapsodizing about the title. ‘Robert Glasper Experiment featuring Erykah Badu’ is a pretty dope place to start. Then “Afro Blue” is one of those titles where you know the music is going to be phenomenal because it’s not physically possible to MAKE a corny song called “Afro Blue”–like flipping through vinyl stacks and coming across a record with cover art so psychedelic it has to be purchased on the spot (see above). Then, when you’re already primed, half-delirious with that lucked-up feeling…bam. 9th Wonder remix featuring Phonte. After that the only thing I could really add is: New Tigallo, new Tigallo, new tigallo.
BUT, I should also maybe mention that this is only the first of 6 remixes that the Experiment are unleashing on an unsuspecting world, 6 re-imaginings collected together as the Black Radio Recovered Remix EP. Another remix from the likes of ?uestlove, Pete Rock, and Georgia Anne Muldrow (see full tracklist after the jump) will be debut on a different site every day this week, all culminating in the premiere of the opus called “Dillatude #2” right here on Okayplayer next Monday, October 8th. And now, I think, you have all the inspiration information you need to properly enjoy this music. Stream below:
