Beneficence & Jazz Spastiks – Summer Night Sessions (LP) [Ill Adrenaline Records IAR056]
***PRE-ORDER – Expected release date 27/10/23***
New Jersey, Brick City hip-hop legend Beneficence and UK-based producer duo Jazz Spastiks unearth a timeless treasure with the release of their collaboration album “Summer Night Sessions”. With a completely jazzy street feel and slick written, soothing, intellectual lyrics, the Ill Adrenaline co-founder releases his 8th full-length album.
Over 25 years of successfully releasing independent music, Beneficence set the bar high by using lo-fi, jazzy boom-bap sounds masterfully. Following his most successful “Stellar Mind” (2021) release accompanied by a memoir (“Concrete Soul – The Memoir & Making of Ill Adrenaline Records”) of his life and music journey, the close Artifacts affiliate delivers a personal collage of authentic hip-hop music with a brilliant Jazz Spastiks backdrop.
Well selected guest appearances in these “Summer Night Sessions” include Skyzoo, Saukrates, Doodlebug (of Digable Planets), Awon, El Da Sensei (of The Artifacts), J-Live, Rakaa Iriscience (of Dilated Peoples), Kid Abstrakt, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and grammy nominated R&B singer Anthony David on a CD/digital-only bonus track. On the first single “Do This, Do That” feat. Awon, Beneficence flows smoothly over simple but captivating horns reminiscing about his come-up on the music scene. “At the time I was seated behind Diddy and Biggie, ’95 Source Awards keys to the city”.
