J Rawls & company are back at it with the third installment of their Liquid Crystal Project releases, due out April 10th. And with that, here goes the first preview.
Like previous Liquid Crystal albums, LCP3 explores sounds, beats, & rhythms with jazz instrumentation alongside an undeniable Hip-Hop influence. Tributes to De La Soul & A Tribe Called Quest highlight the seamless genre-hopping, which mixes elements of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul, Funk, & even Downtempo. “This time we expanded our sound using more musical interpretation & more vibrant sounds,” explains Rawls. With all four members back, plus a special appearance by onetime George Duke & Ramsey Lewis trumpeter Pharez Whitted, The Liquid Crystal Project 3 is a smooth-like-butter musical experience that defies classification. As Rawls puts it: “It’s just satisfactory music.”
