funky dl steps into the arena with his highly demanded album “blackcurrent jazz 3”. seamlessly weaving his boom-bap style with jazz breaks throughout every track and topped with his smooth and often intense flow, his lyrical ability is top shelf and the beats are at an unequaled standard of excellence. the album showcases some of the finest jazz hip-hop in the scene as it shifts through varied styles of jazz and jazz moods. with features from the nujabes collaboratives cise starr and substantial, the entire set oozes with golden droplets of musical magic moment after moment. the tone is set immediately as the album starts and continues an incomparable and superb standard of quality music right up until the final track.
without sampling any breaks or loops, funky dl has created the perfect audio tribute to arguably the greatest group in hip-hop history by remaking the beautiful sounds of a tribe called quest’s 1993 classic album “midnight marauders”. the original album is considered a staple in the linear of hip-hop history and is the album that lead funky dl to pursue his own two-decade career in the world of rap music. dl’s new tribute serves as a beautifully presented piece for a tribe called quest and funky dl fans alike.
