Tall Black Guy - "For The Breakdancers" (Theapy Chop 115)

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Tall Black Guy continues his streak with "For The Breakdancers" (Theapy Chop 115). The track samples George Duke's "The Inner Source" and makes great use of the open sax lines of the Strata East original with this flip. The beat as compared to the George Duke song is proof that Tall Black Guy's ear for breaks, if nothing else, is impeccable. He retains the reverberating warmth of the original and plays upon the nuance of the source track to fill the spaces in his breakbeat driven take. This is all around dope music. Check the track below. Preorder Tall Black Guy's forthcoming LP 8 Miles To Moenart via iTunes.
