>> To me there is no better experience than facing a blank page of paper and pouring my soul into it. The beat is my canvas, my thoughts are the paint and my tongue is the brush. Hearing the songs on a record is like seeing my painting in the Louvre. <<

>> In the part of the musical world in wich we undertake our adventures, vinyl has been and still sometimes is the medium for the evolution of music. We often witness this circumstance during the research for our [rejazzed] shows. Hiphop producers like Q-Tip or J Dilla went out digging for rare soul and jazz records that could only be found on vinyl and created new music by sampling them. Then they put that music on vinyl again. Of course nowadays all this is possible without vinyl. However we think it’s definitely the purest and most soulful medium for that circle of creativity and it was crucial to bring to life a lot of music we listen to today. <<
