This by far has to be one of the best instrumental albums we have come across all summer! Algorythm and Flwrpt have done an amazing job with the whole work of this project. This includes the concept of the project and the art work for the cover. Since its release in June 2010 it has created a major buzz on all of the major hip hop sites and blogs (Google). Make sure you check out the website and support these guys. The album is FREE!
Quote from site:
The Stuyvesants is a collaborative effort between music producer Allan Cole (Algorythm), and record collector Darien Victor Birks (Flwrpt). Both reside in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY. The two wanted to work together on a project where they could incorporate several of their talents, related to music and design. They wanted to do this under a moniker that would pay homage to the ’70s. The collaboration allowed them to do four major things, design, beat dig, produce amazing music, and simply have fun.
Some additional visuals to go along with the music. Which includes a few short documentaries on some of the historical districts within the New York City area using the music from this album. The video was created by the folks over at MVMNT. Enjoy!
