What makes music so appealing as a whole is without a single doubt the variety of its genres. So rather than focusing on one or a couple of them as most oftenly seen elsewhere, we’ve decided to go way further.
The advantage is supposed to be multiple. Recapturing the versatility of Black Music and in the meantime (a part of) its long history. But also giving it a different perspective for (hopefully) a better understanding.
Blues, Gospel, Jazz, Soul, but also Afro or Latin are among the countless moods and influences which have paved its way since day 1. As many elements which form the core of genres such as Funk, Disco, House, Broken Beat and more.
This is pretty much what you’ll find on these shores…
