|Live, instrumental interpretations of 8 jams from the last ATCQ record. Played by Will Glass (the Glass Breaks series, Lonnie Holley, Dirty Projectors) on drums and Alexis Marcelo (Yusef Lateef, Malcolm Mooney, DJ Spinna) on keys.|
Lexiglass began as a live backing band to many of the key MCs and singers in the fervent Uptown NYC scene. They soon delved into instrumental mode, drawn to the underappreciated gems on The Love Movement, Tribe's last masterpiece. With their aligned backgrounds in both hip hop and avant garde jazz, Alexis Marcelo (Yusef Lateef, Malcolm Mooney, DJ Spinna) and Will Glass (the Glass Breaks series, Lonnie Holley, Dirty Projectors) found ample room for exploration in these jams, and a template for a whole new project: the Cubetazo Tape Series. Recording all live to cassette four-track on just keys and drums, this is live beats at their most raw.
This is the cassette to own right here! If you like what El MIchels Affair did with ''Enter the 37th Chamber'' or what Will Sessions did with ''The Elmatic Instrumentals'' then you will love the live instrumentation and twist put on to these gems from the last ATCQ classic. It's amazing how the band keeps the essence of ''The Love Movement'' sound but adds a fresh new take to each track.
