‘Cosmic Dust’ is comprised of tracks circling jazz’s periphery in the past few years. The playlist features a range of artists from the exciting British duo Yussef Kamaal to hip-hop-influenced BadBadNotGood.
Lakuta brings us infectious, Latin-inspired rhythms on ‘Changanya,’ and The Comet is Coming offers frantic, trippy meanderings on ‘Cosmic Dust.’
Also included is Thundercat’s recent release ‘Show You the Way,’ which features music legends Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald. There have been colorful interpretations of how the track should be heard, though we at WOTT think it’s great for toking.
Moses Boyd and Nérija are also featured on the playlist — both young and exciting UK-based projects. Saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings makes two appearances, with Soccer96 as Mercury-Prize-nominated The Comet is Coming and on his own project, Shabaka and the Ancestors.
