John Robinson is a veteran of the hip-hop scene. He has been dropping quality music for over twenty years now. This past week, he just released a new album with prolific drummer, composer, producer and band-leader Pat Van Dkye (aka PVD).
PVD describes the sound of Modern Vintage, “Live drums, keys, guitars, horns, and synths give this record a distinctly human feel that is present in all of my favorite records, old and new. A modern-day true hip-hop record, grounded firmly in the traditions of jazz, funk, and soul music.”
