Eric Copeland (also a member of Black Dice) just dropped his latest record, “Goofballs,” today. Copeland’s exploration of the dance genre is dazzling on “Goofballs.” “Neckbone” is a standout deconstruction and homage to the techno genre. “Close Encounters” cycles through tones, moods, genres, and rhythms but never falters. The names may be silly but the tracks bang. ...

What immediately comes through in a cursory survey of No Regular Play’s catalogue is a love for the jazz and hip-hop influences the DJ/production duo proudly claim. A Tribe Called Quest and Miles Davis can clearly be heard as influences, in deconstructed form, throughout the group’s single “Hear You Sing.” In fact, Rudists’ remix of “Hear You ...

Mdou Moctar Brings His Mysterious Saharan Duskcore Sound to Lincoln Center

Source: New York Music Daily

The Lincoln Center atrium space on Broadway just north of 62nd St. has become as fertile a breeding ground for paradigm-shifting musical collaborations as any other venue in New York.
