Playing tracks by
DJ Shadow, The Herbaliser Band, Java, Roots Manuva, Travailleurs de l'Ombre and more.
Take half a dozen abstract hip-hop tunes, made by the finest instrumental wizards, such as Shadow, Krush, Vadim, Blockhead or RJD2. Add a pinch of electro-experimental raps like Roots Manuva or Anti-Pop Consortium. To add flavour to the mix, use some typical french spices such as « rap-musette » band Java (the song "Métro" is made only with Paris subway station names) or my buddies Les Travailleurs de l'Ombre, coming from our "300 rainy days per year" city. Mix it with some more classical hip-hop tunes (Hieroglyphics, Herbaliser). Add a hint of funky sounds (Sugarman Three & Co., Hampton Hawes) and then sprinkle with some jazz-rap particles (Buckshot Lefonque, Truffaz). That's my own hip-hop special recipe ! Hope you like...
