It feels odd to call this self-titled release by Soul Supreme his debut album; the Amsterdam-based keyboardist, DJ & producer has been releasing music for over six years now. With best known his 45 records reinterpreting music by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five and Mos Def, and more recently his ATCQ 45 Check The Rhime b/w Lyrics To Go.
But here we are, with his first official album with his own compositions and productions. The album finds Soul Supreme in a dizzying array of musical twists and turns. With as the first two singles the broken beats on ‘Keep Moving,’ and in good ol’ Soul Supreme fashion, a reinterpretation of music he loves: French sample classic ‘Huit Octobre 1971’ by Cortex.
Listen to the first two tracks below before the official release on October 23rd (which is a good release day, by the way…). With album liner notes by yours truly on Bandcamp:
