Black Space Tapes

Jamael Dean

¥2,200 (+tax)

LA拠点のインディペンデントレコードレーベル Stones Throw Recordsからジャズ、ピアニスト、プロデューサー Jamael Deanのデビューアルバムの12インチレコード。

Pianist and producer Jamael Dean is a jazz prodigy. Just 20 years old, he’s already collaborated and performed with the likes of Kamasi Washington, Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Carlos Niño.

He explains his album’s title: “Black is used to give reverence to the spirit of nothing that preceded all in the universe which, throughout the album, is referred to as Akamara. Space is used to allude to the ever-expansiveness of our beings, matter, and time itself. Tapes shows the marriage of those two ideas (i.e the stickiness of tape) and how the album is a vessel of sound that grows with you (i.e. cassette tapes). Black Space Tapes shows the evolution of how music played a role in my life, from jazz to rap and beyond that. It’s a river of shifting patterns, and temperatures that show we as humans are instruments striving towards harmony in nature.”
