The 17-track Fusion Swing was pieced together at various studios throughout Los Angeles and is a culmination of Elusive's history with the overlapping worlds of jazz, hip-hop, classical, and the thriving LA beat scene. With its vivid instrumentation and gritty drum programming, Fusion Swing paints a vibrant picture of Elusive's world, and in turn positions him as one of the beat scene's most unique producers.
Adding to the album's grand scope, Elusive enlisted acclaimed artists Randal Fisher (sax), Emile Poree (guitar), Ardom Beltan (bass), Todd Simon (trumpet), Isaac Takeuchi (cello), and Christian Frederick Thierbach IV (harp) to provide instrumentation on 10 of the album's tracks, while LA artist Nite Jewel steps in for vocals on "Rinse Cycle."
Fusion Swing drops on March 24, on both CD and digital formats, via Alpha Pup Records. Ahead of that, you can stream album cut "Perceptions" in full via the player below.
