We thought all you waveriders who dig a little smooth soul and funky rap might like this project – 88KEYS. It seems that this guys debut is so anticipated even boastful KANYE WEST begged to produce his album.
88-KEYS, a Harlem Native & longtime MC/Producer, has created a musical concept album ”The Death Of Adam” about man’s universal plight to “get bootay.”.It follows fictional character “Adam” as he lusts after a girl, finds her, has sex, gets an STD and the whole rollercoaster afterwards. Sounds like solid family fare to us. Talking from experience, both the Pope and I absolutely hate that when it happens. Interview Magazine describes it as experimental,pop, electro-funk and classic soul and URB Magazine describes 88-Keys as “the future, co-signed by the present, ready to rip apart the past”. It features the group Shataki Monkey, punk soul group J*Davey and Redman amongst executive producer Kanye West.
