Future Classic: Jose James “Vicadin”

Hip-Hop Soul

José James began the process of creation of “Blackmagic” with Los Angeles beat mangler Flying Lotus (Warp / Brainfeeder) in April 2008. Throwing all their ideas between east and west coast, this duo has produced a handful of experimental hip-hop beats & melodies. This future classic is no exemption. “Vicatin” is an another confirmation of what José James is capable of, by collaborating with creative producers around the world.

As I look to the future, two questions comes to my mind. How many albums José will release in 2011 ? And what kind of collaboration do you expect from him ? I hope that he will pursuit is jazz exploration by teaming up with the talented trumpeter Matthew Hallsall from Gondwana Records.
