Terrace Martin-A Tribe Called West

Terrace Martin is a huge Tribe Called Quest fan and last summer he recorded “Tribe Called West” to pay tribute their influence on his career. He told The Fader, “I was in N.Y.C. last summer and it was a hot summer. I was inspired by the energy of N.Y. alone to do different types of music. That’s why I love the city. But I also wanted to do something to say thank you to one of my favorite groups. Thank you for letting me know it’s okay to be different. Thank you for turning me on to jazz music, because without A Tribe Called Quest there would not be a Terrace Martin. I wouldn’t even be a musician because ATCQ is what made me want to play the saxophone. I wanted to get someone involved on it with me who understood the power and love of Tribe so I decided to call one of my best friends, Keyon Harrold, featured on the trumpet.” Martin is releasing his Velvet Portraits album on April 1st and there are appearances from Lalah Hathaway, Kamasi Washington, Robert Glasper and more.

Fantastic Negrito At SXSW

Blues singer/musician Fantastic Negrito appeared at SXSX this year and performed a 41-minute set on the Radio Day Stage. The Oakland native has been quietly infiltrating the world of music with his painful but powerful version of the blues. Last year he released his self-titled EP,  he won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest and had the #1 blues single on iTunes. “Working Poor” is his new single and he dedicates the song to “the millions of people who work two and three jobs and still can’t make ends meet. It’s for everyone who woke up one day and couldn’t afford to live in the cities they grew up in.”
