EVENT REVIEW & SLIDESHOW : Brainfeeder LA

EVENT REVIEW & SLIDESHOW : Brainfeeder LA, Music Box June 2011 | FusicologY.COM

I’ve been to the Music Box several times but never have I witnessed such a grand set up of sound:

Perfectly vertically-aligned bass amps making the stage look like it was elegantly lowered, and of course creating that deep PureFilth sound that the Brainfeeder Crew is known for. I walked into the melodic sounds of Teebs transitioning into Samiyam‘s classic rapbeats and sneak peaks off his upcoming Sam Baker’s Album to be released on Brainfeeder.

Gaslamp Killer’s set was magnificent, weaving through classics, samples and original productions. Austin Peralta and Thundercat’s duet set was like a flight through the cosmos preparing the audience for Flying Lotus’ stellar performance.

They joined him on stage with Carla Azar from Autolux on drums, playing both unreleased and highly anticipated joints like “Do The Astro Plane”. The Brainfeeder LA show was a symphony of beats and visuals that continued throughout the night and Fusicology was there to witness it.

Feel. George Duke 1971-1980

Ever since we started working on the Thundercat record we’ve all been listening to the living legend, George Duke so much!
Our friend B+ (Mochilla) put together a mix dedicated to his amazing catalog…

Feel. George Duke 1971-1980

Thundercat’s recent cover of For Love I Come inspired me to have a listen again to the amazing music of George Duke. When most of the records on this mix were made it was an extraordinarily creative time in LA. A family of musicians were bringing new rhythms, new instruments, new humor, new international influences to jazz. CannonBall was an important figure and his partner David Axelrod – but the new arrivals Airto Moreira and Flora Plurim were also instrumental and then George Duke from the Bay Area who had collaborated with Frank Zappa.

George Duke has been an inspiration to hip-hop for many many years… Back in 1991 an album came out called Low End Theory by A Tribe Called Quest. You may know the name for another reason but anyways on a song called The Infamous Date Rape Tribe sampled Steam Drill by Cannonball Adderley featuring George Duke and we were off to the races. Ice Cube sampled Duke for True to the Game from Death Certificate that same year. Since then many more beat heads have been attracted to Mr. Dukes amazing keyboard playing, sense of rhythm and unique lyrical stylings. Dilla has definitely listened as has Madlib, Pete Rock, Kanye, Karriem Riggins and now well Thundercat, who for all his youth has actually played with George Duke.

This mix is in tribute to George Duke as it is in celebration of Thundercat.
I think we are in a similarly creative moment now in LA as existed in the mid seventies and it seems fitting to make the link.
Good musicians will make you listen again and
ThunderCats For Love I Come surely made me do that.
Enjoy.
