Reborn - Kids See Ghosts

It's funny that I have scheduled this song to be the track of this week; it is called "Reborn", and "coincidentally" (I don't believe in coincidences, hahahaha), we've just been through a solar eclipse (August 11th), and I also have a lot of  personal & astrology stuff going on that means rebirth, new cycles etc etc etc…

Logos - King Krule

I have no idea of how to describe the genre of this specific song neither the type of music King Krule makes; and apparently I'm not the only one. Seriously, I googled "King Krule genre" and I got: indie rock; jazz fusion; dark wave; punk jazz; post-punk; trip hop; and hip hop... That's crazy and that's awesome…

That's What I am Talking About (feat. Rell) - Pete Rock

It is possible that Music to Dali & Jay Z Lovers wouldn't even exist without Pete Rock. He is one of the main guys who merged hip hop and jazz, so yeah, "that's what I am talking about". 

Both solo or along with C L Smooth, Pete Rock is the mind, the voice & the beats behind dope tracks such as "They reminisce over you", a must-listen for jazz rap fans and a true hip hop classic…

Hip 2 Da Game - Lord Finesse feat. Kid Capri

Ahhh that delicious 90's feeling! Listening to "Hip 2 da game" by Lord Finesse brings back such vibes. 

The combination of R&B beats and jazzy horns is awesome already, and so chillin', but don't you think this track is all softness: Lord Finesse ain't afraid to come as hard as possible with his lyrics, talking about his realness and how neither having fame or being broke would change who he is…

Loungin' - Guru

Straight from the same source that gave birth to one of the most iconic hip hop groups ever, "Loungin'" is a gem of the beautiful world of projects that fuse hip hop and jazz. 

The track was released in "Guru's Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1", an album released by the founder of Gangstarr, legendary rapper and producer Guru…

Runnin' - The Pharcyde

After some weeks playing a bit of modern trends of hip hop and R&B, old school jazz rap is back to Music to Dali & Jay-Z Lovers!

Old and new are always welcome as long as it's good music, and that's definitely the case here! "Runnin'" by The Pharcyde is groovy hip hop with elements of jazz and samba (including a Stan Getz sample), produced by the awesome J. Dilla (check our review of "Thought u wuz nice", also produced by him).
