This cloudcast is a tribute to José James, the rising star of the next generation of contemporary music. Beats or no beats, José James has something going on. Since the release of his Equinox demo back in 2006, James’ forged his reputation by collaborating on record with a wide assortment of jazz and hip-hop acts, including, Nicola Conte, Toshio Matsuura, Jazzanova, J.A.M. (SOIL & “PIMP” Sessions), Junior Mance, DJ Mitsu, Basement Jaxx, Flying Lotus, Chico Hamilton, Jef Neve and Timo Lassy. To honour the eclectic style of José James, I’ve put together some tracks from his two original albums, his live shows and his collaboration. Finally, there is also an interview made by Lexis, founder of http://www.musicismysanctuary.com/ that cover the release of Blackmagic back in february 2010.
