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 is taking us 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 (and French accent) are a perfect match. The album sleeve has been designed by Turkish artist Gizem Wintah. A limited vinyl edition of the album comes with three prints of Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd and The Stylistics. 500 numbered copies only.
