We spent a few days downtime, due to an impressive server fail, last week meaning we’ve had too much time to listen to Kwes’ playlist. However, we’ve still back for another Playlist and we’ve gotten both OpenOptics & Chavez of Inspired Flight to give us their recently listened playlist.
I’m going to try hard not to turn this into a massive love-in for Inspired Flight. Not only because they gave me a new appreciation for born-again artist and frequently collaborator, Eligh but because they’re doing some of the most interesting things with the genre. I enjoyed a few tracks from We All Want To Fly, but it appears they’ve found another level. So many different genres mixed in here, so well done. Brilliant stuff. Best of all, it’s completely free if you give the fine guys of Inspired Flight your e-mail address.
The countdown continues and we’re nearly there. Here’s our list of tracks that just missed out on the top ten.
They say that you have to go through some things before you write great music, it would be tough to argue with that after listening to Grey Crow. With it being the first solo release after triumphing above drug addiction, the album is unsurprisingly personal. These autobiographical tracks spare little detail and really go to great length to sculpt the journey Eligh has been on.
Another Monday, another six choices from the Lesson Six playlist. If you’re new to the site, every Monday we post six tracks we’ve been listening too recently. Now this doesn’t mean that they’re new, in fact it normally means the opposite, but they’re all decent.
I’ve been debating whether it really is worth throwing up some thoughts on this album. Despite guestspots by Inspectah Deck, Rugged Monk and Scarub and Eligh of Living Legends, We All Want To Fly isn’t all hip-hop. Made up of a guitarist and a turntablist, Chavez and OpenOptics respectively, Inspired Flight’s début takes influences from nearly every genre you could name to create a stunningly unique sound.
I’m currently debating whether this album should be reviewed for what is essentially a hip-hop site. Why? Well only five of the twelve tracks could be classified as a form of hip hop. While as a whole it’s probably not worth it, those five tracks are something else. Here’s the first song of the album, It’s The Chemicals featuring Scarub.
