We could all use a little injection of humanity right now, so for this edition of #DrinkingMusic we're offering up LiveHuman, a free-improvising collective that channels bebop freedom with the audacity of hip-hop, driven by a kick-ass rhythm section with one of the baddest turntablists in the game. And one of the most righteous musical expressions we've heard in a long time.
A pocket orchestra comprised of DJ Quest, drummer Albert Mathias, and upright bassist Andrew Ross Kushin, LiveHuman is a no-holds-barred search for a turntable jazz synthesis, a journey that reaches its apex on the new album ScratchBop, which drops next week on [Cosmic]. Get it, drink some absinthe, and remind yourself of what it means to be human.
Until then you can wet your whistle with the single magic 4 beginners - cheers!
