#bluenoteremixed vol​.​1 by Mark de Clive-Lowe

Armed with a crateful of classics from Blue Note Records’ genre-defining years, Mark de Clive-Lowe has created a live-remix mixtape weaving from jazz to hip hop classics, to underground house and broken beat. Recorded and improvised live in one take, MdCL deploys his drum machine, sample pads, rhodes and keyboards on-the-fly bringing unique perspective to moments created decades earlier by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, and Donald Byrd. From reminiscing samples that we fell in love with through A Tribe Called Quest and J Dilla, to reimagining sax great Joe Henderson riding a broken-afro electronic frenzy, MdCL paints his own vision of what Blue Note means to him.
