Our good friends over at The Find Magazine have released Jazzvolution Chapter One, a fresh, fresh instrumental compilation paying tribute to jazz, beats and the legends that have created musical legacy. Right from the start, deeB sets us off with the magical ‘Canopy Creatures’, with Maloon TheBoom following it up with a Dilla-esque swing – and we’re only a quarter of the way in at this stage. While this release is ‘only’ eight tracks deep, The Find Mag have definitely gone for quality over quantity, so head over to their website, show them some love and download the album. It’s a nice cliffhanger to leave it on for Chapter Two…
The Find Magazine is very proud to unveil a new compilation series focused on progressive jazz beatstrumentals. To showcase beatmaking as both an evolution and revolution of jazz music, we have asked some of our favourite artists from around the world to craft beats that go beyond blending loops.
The result is a small collection of intricate and forward-thinking instrumentals paying homage to music legends like DJ Shadow, Ahmad Jamal, Nujabes, Yusef Lateef, J Dilla, Bill Evans, and many more in the realm of both jazz and hip hop.
The improvisational and experimental aesthetics of jazz are modernized through the concepts of hip hop production and sampling, where artists recontextualize old/new sounds to create an original and cohesive ‘beat’. Each artist was challenged to concoct a progressive instrumental piece inspired by jazz music.
This chapter of Jazzvolution is the first in an ongoing series that will seek to explore the boundaries of hip hop and jazz fusion, as well as generate awareness and support for various charities and social development initiatives. Chapter 1 seeks to raise funds for the incredible Beat Making Lab project.
