Blues x Rock x Hip-Hop
Blues/Rock production with hip-hop infusion
The album/group with the Black Keys and guest hip-hop artists on vocal duties is called Blakroc and serves as the inspiration for this blues/rock/hip-hop fusion station. The ratios of each genre differ song to song with some leaning towards rock/hip-hop, some blues/hip-hop and some equal amounts of all three. While artists like the Roots, Monster Florence, G. Love, Mocheeba, Akala & Flobots have many contributions, this is one of the most artist-varied stations so far.
As this is not an established and defined genre like blues-rock or classic-rock or jazz/hip-hop, it was more fun to put together by finding a certain bluesy aesthetic across a large variety of artists.
Next week celebrates 6 months of the Rek-List with the 26th station. We're finishing off the Sensual Sonics Series next week with the third installment...
