Alright, people. Robert Glasper has blessed us with the first track from his upcoming Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP. Featuring production from 9th Wonder and added vocals from Phonte, “Afro Blue” has now been transformed into a “fly love song,” sprinkled with soft flutes and Tigallo’s mellow lyrics. Black Radio Recovered drops on Oct. 9.

Phonte, along with the talented Carlitta Durand, drops his new video for “Gonna Be a Beautiful Night,” one of my favorite joints from Charity Starts at Home. The visuals of interlocking fingers, chivalry, deep eye contact, and intimately placed hands are date night personified. Featuring jewelry designer Rachel Stewart and her beau, the video evokes such romantic feelings, it’s impossible not to love every minute of it.

Some of the best news I’ve heard this week, the official release of Robert Glasper’s Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP drops on Oct. 9. Glasper’s most recent release, Black Radio (still in heavy rotation, btw), is a beautiful melding of jazz, hip hop and soul, so there’s no doubt that The Remix EP will maintain that same level of genre intermixing. With production credits from 9th Wonder, ?uestlove and Georgia Anne Muldrow, additional vocal stylings from talents such as Phonte, Black Milk and Solange Knowles, this reworking should be well worth the anticipation. Check out the tracklisting and lil’ performance from The Robert Glasper Experiment with the lovely Lalah Hathaway under the cut. (more…)

With building anticipation of Black Radio (which will be in stores tomorrow, 2/28), a healthy sample of what’s in store from The Robert Glasper Experiment has been mixed, recorded and packaged up nicely, thanks to Frolab & All the Way Live. The live recordings come from shows in NYC, Paris and Montreux with appearances from Yasiin Bey, Bilal, Phonte, and some other nice additions.

I’m a huge fan of “blue-collar lyrics”–lyrics that resonate in the everyday (wo)man’s working spirit. And right now, Phonte is diligently providing a voice for the 9-5ers. “The Good Fight” (produced by 9th Wonder) comes from Phonte’s debut album, Charity Starts At Home, which, by the way, is one of the realest albums of 2011.
