PORTER CHOPS GLASPER

Porter Chops Glasper is the first in a series of instrumental albums planned from Grammy Award-winning artist Denaun Porter, the producer working as “Mr. Porter” for the likes of hip-hop’s Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Busta Rhymes and Snoop Dogg, and worldwide icons like Burt Bacharach, Beyonce and Shakira. The album is inspired by the music of fellow Grammy Award-winning jazz musician Robert Glasper. Porter explains, “Long story short, I am a fan of Robert Glasper. This project contains samples of music of his from the internet, official releases, and even live performances I saw on YouTube. Porter Chops is a representation of when, I feel, the business side of things interfere too much with my creative process. ”

Kid Fonque – 2sides

‘2sides’ is a magical blend of everything that Kid Fonque is loved for: broken beats, house, jazziness and a hint of hip hop. An elegant piano loop dances on a warm bass drum - then a bass melody creeps in. Now we’re on the dancefloor. Clever, intricate percussive elements evoke the hum of a smoky Jazz club - hands clap and hi-hats snap. Just when you think this groove has reached its final destination – The Layders’ king of keys - ‘V The Vowel’ lays down an infectious melody and the script is flipped. The cherry on top? ‘Theo Parrish’ talking you through his DJ philosophy. It’s fresh and full of surprises - your new favourite tune has arrived.
