9th Wonder remixes Robert Glasper

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2012 at 2:25 PM

Back in March, we interviewed the hip-hop-influenced jazz pianist Robert Glasper. His group, Robert Glasper Experiment, was headed to Durham for a two-night residency at the Casbah in support of their new album, Black Radio. During our chat, Glasper spoke of his fondness for local Grammy-winning producer, 9th Wonder: "Doesn't he live out there? I'm trying to reach him. I want him to do a remix. Put it in the paper," said Glasper. We followed Glasper's instructions, and maybe that's what led to 9th Wonder contributing to Glasper's upcoming Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP.

Photo by Jake ThomasKeith Morris of OFF!, onstage in Raleigh OFF!, Negative Approach, Double NegativeKingsSept. 30, 2012 Supergroups almost always seem better in principle than in practice. It’s unfair, after all, to task a group of respected artists with overcoming their collective résumé, but that’s the job at hand: Remind us of your past glories, and feed us something fresh. OFF! is the preservationist hardcore quartet comprising original Black Flag and Circle Jerks singer Keith Morris, Redd Kross bassist Steven McDonald, Burning Brides guitarist Dimitri Coats and Rocket From The Crypt drummer Mario Rubalcaba. The band introduced itself in 2010...
