[MdCL] This is from our good friend Mark de Clive Lowe:
two of my favorite ever gigs in NYC were both at NUBLU. the first was with sammy figueroa (miles davis alum) on percussion and bembe segue on mic; the second was tawiah on mic and samuel torres (chick corea band) on percussion. it kind of reminds me a little of the jazz refreshed… night in london – the vibe is amazing and so perfect to explore music in. so… a little unexpectedly, i’m going to be hitting at NUBLU again for round #3 !
Eric Lau has been on my radar for a few years and on constant repeat when I heard “I Don’t Do It To” with Tawiah from his last album New Territories. As much as we both wanted that track on my Friends We Love CD, the powers that be couldn’t work it out. At least now Eric & I keep each other informed on new projects, which leads me to Kilawatt V2, his new release. It’s coming out in early March on Kilawatt Music’s limited edition producer series including collabos with Kaidi Tatham, Muhsinah & Oddisee.
