The Liquid Crystal Project – Ghetto

blame it on Shake March 7, 2012

J Rawls and 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, and rhythms with jazz instrumentation alongside an undeniable Hip-Hop influence. Tributes to De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest highlight the seamless genre-hopping, which mixes elements of Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul, Funk, and even Downtempo. “This time we expanded our sound using more musical interpretation and more vibrant sounds,” explains Rawls. With all four members back, plus a special appearance by onetime George Duke and 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 good music.”
