Various Artists The Kajmere Sound Vol. 1
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Kajmere
On this up-and-coming LA label's new compilation, you'll discover a little bit of nu-jazz, some hip-hop, an occasional touch of funk, and everything in between. The silky smooth tone remains constant; it's the genre-bending collaborations that are most appealing. Just listen to slick-talking MC N8E's melodious duet with forgotten R&B star Jon B ("Tread Lightly") or Afrodisiac Sound System's modern funk explosion, which features an extra bubbly Raashan Ahmad of Crown City Rockers ("Revolution"). Chances are, you won‘t dig everything on here, but you will definitely find something up your alley.
