august '18: recap #3

Francisco Espregueira

August running down the drain with a eclectic choice of 50 tracks that reviews the best we've talked about this month, remembers music icons and rediscovers modern classics. We take the opportunity to reference (Liv)e., a promising experimental R&B nomad making music that lands somewhere between the garbled funk of '71 Sly Stone and the free-spirited R&B of Queen Erykah Badu. The first song of her latest project ::oopdream:: opened our spirits.

We also tripped to some Yusef Lateef's compositions. On the album Live at Pep's we hear one of his finest moments. A 5-star LP. Arguably the best moment of the record, is this version of "Oscarlypso". Praised at his time, and a lifetime of influence over other artists. Legend.

The hip hop beatmaker Onra has ripped some style barriers to deliver, in a space of nearly a decade, the acclaimed Chinoiseries trilogy, inspired by the colors of Southeast Asia. The last track of that magnificent series, and the end of August '18 playlist, sounds like a warm goodbye. But we'll get back to him eventually.
