Smooth jazz vibes are oozing off this exclusive John Robinson assisted remix of Pat Van Dyke single "The Business". You might know Pat Van Dyke as the producer and drummer of the duo Lux DeVille (together with emcee 8thW1) whose music I covered several times on this blog. Now PVD steps to the forefront with the release of his own solo debut called "Technicolor Hi-Fi" that will be released on vinyl and digital by Elementality in conjunction with Cotter Records and Open Crates this December. This particular remix will be included on a limited 45 when you purchase the 2xLP set.
The album is an instrumental effort that gracefully balances between jazz and traditional hip-hop. Along with PVD, who besides the drums and arranging handles instruments such as synths, guitar, and vibes, are pianists Jesse Fischer and Jordan Piper, bassists Josh Davis and Jordan Scanella, plus guitarists Ben Zeff, and Jamieson Ledonio. If you're a fan of Madlib's non-sample based jazz excursions this one comes highly recommended. Also check the first single from the project which is called "Frequency" below and pre-order your copy of the wax @ PVDmusic.com.
