QUEST FOR CUBA: QUESTLOVE BRINGS THE FUNK TO HAVANA (MINI-DOCUMENTARY)

In April of this year, Questlove took advantage of President Obama lifting some travel restrictions with Cuba and made a trip down to the island. Okayplayer documents his journey.

In addition to two nights of DJing, Questlove made good use of his time in Havana, engaging in extensive cultural research both by digging up some classic Cuban-made vinyl and by visiting the legendary EGREM studios, where most–if not all–of those classic sessions were recorded.

SKYZOO – SUICIDE DOORS

Skyzoo cuts loose the first track from his third LP Music For My Friends dropping on June 23 and has some words regarding the song.

“I wanted this record to really remind people of what I do as far as entendres go. The double and even triple meanings, the layering, the stacking, I wanted that be the foundation for this song. Being that the album itself is based on storytelling more so than anything else, I wanted to have at least one record where I just let it all fly”.
