This EP is inspired by Toonami, and the Jazz we grew up on, that’s still embedded inside of us. It’s a soundtrack for Dreamers & those who still believes in HOPE & LOVE! We decided to release the EP on Nujabes’ birthday, in remembrance of his legacy and his influence on us both. The body may depart, but the soul is an ART… Love is eternal.
He went across the water for this one; in a manner of speaking. The Jazz Hop Cafe is based in the UK.
Juju Rogers brings in Oddisee for the brand new single “Dreams” (produced by Jusoul). This is off Rogers’ forthcoming LP “From The Life Of A Good-For-Nothing” (due out July 3, 2015) on Jakarta Records. You can pre-order at the link below, but by all means try before you buy. Seeing as how we have the dope stream already cued for you above.
Nice bippety-boppity jazz from Black Milk’s 2013 album – “No Poison No Paradise” – entitled “Sonny Jr.” An incredible musical ride featuring Robert Glasper (on keyboard) and Dwele (on trumpet). Linked the single below (which will also allow you to get at the album, and thus, bonus tracks and all kinds of extras).
House Shoes put out this jawn “Dreams – B.I.G. Re:Imagined.” It’s a stack of Biggie tracks remixed by Shoes, Nottz, 14KT, Quelle Chris, Khrysis, and others. Solid work.
Respect to Skyzoo for the new video dopeness! “FGR” (First Generation Rich) is off Skyzoo’s forthcoming mixtape, “Theo VS JJ (Dreams vs. Reality).” You can cop your own download of the mixtape (including this “FGR” joint) via iTunes. Nice. So nice! Here’s what Skyzoo had to say about it:
‘The idea for “FGR” came from me watching an Oprah Winfrey special on the Miami Heat’s recent title win; she asked Dwyane Wade about his life now, as opposed to when he was a kid in Chicago. He went on to talk about being the first one in his family to have any type of ‘real money.’ In doing so, he used a slogan: “First Generation Rich.”‘

In a departure from the boom bap we’ve come to expect, yU sets Danedra Rowell on lead vocals for “Dreams” – a rap-free melancholy melody on how we had bigger dreams when were younger… too young to fully understand them. Shout to Kevin Nottingham for the scoop on this gem.
