Kassin - Relax
Over the course of his career, Kassin has produced roughly 100 records for singers like Marisa Monte and Bebel Gilberto, recorded with Sean O’Hagan and made a full album based on Nintendo GameBoy sounds.
Across 11 tracks, Kassin flirts with Latin rhythms, Brazilian pop, and straight-ahead soul, using this varied sonic array to tell imagined tales of death, drug usage, politics and fate.
Domenico Lancellotti - The Good is a Big God
“Working with music is crazy,” multi-instrumentalist Domenico Lancellotti recently said in an interview. “God be crazy. Out of fear.” He’s right. To do anything creative is to exist outside your body, to teeter between reality and sanity. It’s from this mindset that Domenico created his new work, The Good is a Big God, a 14-track collection of reflective samba that first took shape almost six years ago.
