Quick post. Earlier this month, the unparalleled drummer Mark Guiliana dropped a remix of “BUD”, one of the singles from his latest album BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC!, produced by none other than famed electronic artist Shigeto and also featuring experimental Detroit singer and songwriter Kesswa.
If you were keeping track, Guiliana and Shigeto collaborated in 2015 on trumpeter Dave Douglas’ HIGH RISK.
The new remix is hella dope, so give it a spin below.
Also worthy of mentioning, BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC! BEAT MUSIC! just received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.
It’ll be competing against Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah’s Ancestral Recall and Theo Crocker’s Star People Nation.
I guess this means we’re not really a jazz website anymore, and we’re totally cool with that.
We’re really hoping one of those three will get the final nod.
It would mean so much for the music we believe in so fervently…
