Das Budapester DJ- und Produzentenduo Nándor Kürtössy & Sándor Lakatos aka Savages Y Suefo haben mit “Brotherhood” ihr zweites Album veröffentlicht.

Wie bereits das Debüt “Worldstyle” (2013) geriet auch “Brotherhood” zu einem genreübergreifenden Downtempo-Meisterstück, in das die Magyaren gekonnt Elemente aus Blues, Dub, Jazz, HipHop, Funk, Soul und Folk einfließen ließen.

Das Ganze garnierten sie mit erstaunlich kritischen Lyrics über die sozialen Probleme der Gegenwart. Für deren Interpretation sorgte eine Riege internationaler Gastsänger wie der ungarische Ska-Star KRSA, Fedora und Bryant Goodman, Ashley Slater von Freak Power, Denise M Baye von Mo Horizons, M3NSA von Fokn Bois sowie RedRed.

Das sollte man sich nicht entgehen lassen:

Der amerikanische Grammygewinner und Jazztrompeter Roy Hargrove, ist am Freitag im Alter von 49 Jahren in New York gestorben. Er erlitt nach Komplikationen im Kampf gegen eine Nierenkrankheit einen Herzstillstand, wie sein langjähriger Manager Larry Clothier am Samstag auf Hargroves Facebook-Seite mitteilte:

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of the great Roy Anthony Hargrove, at age 49, in New York City last night from cardiac arrest due to complications from his valiant battle with kidney disease, according to his longtime manager, Larry Clothier.
One of the most respected and loved musicians in our New York City community and the world at large, the trailblazing multiple Grammy Award winning trumpeter was known just as intensely for his brimming fire and fury as he was for his gorgeous, signature balladry. Over and over, his sound attested to and sanctified his deep love for music. His unselfish timbre covered the waterfront of every musical landscape. Owning his music, his sound, Roy inspired generations of musicians. He was a game changer.
He is survived by his wife, Aida, daughter Kamala, mother Jacklyn and brother, Brian.
Further arrangements will be announced as they become available.

Zu seiner Erinnerung gibt es hier einen Mitschnitt seines fantastischen Konzerts während der Stuttgarter JazzOpen 2005.

R.I.P. Brother!
