people make the world go round

medline-people-make-the-world-go-round

With his debut album „People Make The World Go Round“ the French producer Medline is taking you on a trip down memory lane by paying tribute to the jazz funk masters who’s music shaped the musical DNA of hip-hop. From Roy Ayers and Lonnie Liston Smith to Freddie Hubbard and the Heath Brothers. Songs like „Everybody Loves The Sunshine“, „Red Clay“ or „Smilin’ Billy Suite“ have been a staple amongst hip-hop and jazz fans alike for a long time. But the album is more than a sample song-book of 90ties rap. Medline reinterpretates the songs in his very own way. A beatmaker by trade, Medline acts as a one man orchestra playing every instrument himself. with a strong focus on the flute. Think Herbie Mann joins Yesterdays New Quintett with a headnod towards broken beat. On three songs he is joined by Roni Alkekengi who’s sultry vocals are a perfect match.

Release via Melting Pot Music on 4th April. Stream preview tracks below.
