74 Miles Away
MPM have teamed up with the Laid Back Radio collective from Brusseles to add a new chapter to the metaphysics of a jazzthing. 74 MILES AWAY is a collaboration between Belgian jazz pianist/composer Pierre Anckaert and producers Monkey Robot (previously known as Infinitskills), curated by LBR founder Julius Mourlon. Pierre Anckaert composed and recorded four electric jazz tracks with his trio. Monkey Robot have radically reworked these four songs featuring singers AHU (One Handed Music, best known from the first Flying Lotus album), Carina Andersson (the voice behind 4 Hero's epic take on Minnie Riperton's "Les Fleurs") and Miles Bonny (MPM, DJ Day). 74 MILES AWAY take you on a trip from the days of Bob James and Herbie Hancock to the future beat and soul sound of today. If you are looking for the perfect beat in 2011, we highly recommend to check out this record.
