Robert Glasper no matter if he is playing with his Trio, Xperiment or Black Radio, is always building bridges, joining dots and bending genres. He has this strange type of magnetism, wherever he is going, I am going after him.
Robert Glasper released today a new mixtape called ‘Fuck Yo Feelings’. Mixtape is a collection of 19 tracks recorded during 48 hours session. Mixtape “is the result of a two-day session in which Glasper invited musician friends to stop by the studio and organically create together”.
