74 Miles Away is a collaboration between Jazz pianist Pierre Anckaert and beatmakers MonkeyRobot. After releasing their first album on Melting Pot Music, the trio recorded this track for Lefto's show live at Studio Brussel... and we couldn't resist including it on the LDBK compilation tracklist.
74 MILES AWAY is a collaboration between Belgian jazz pianist/composer Pierre Anckaert and producers MonkeyRobot (previously known as Infinitskills), curated by LDBK radio founder Julien Mourlon.
Pierre Anckaert composed and recorded four electric jazz tracks with his trio. MonkeyRobot have radically reworked these four songs featuring singers AHU (One Handed Music, best known from the first Flying Lotus album), Carina Andersson (the voice behind 4 Hero's epic take on Minnie Riperton's "Les Fleurs") and Miles Bonny (MPM, DJ Day).
74 MILES AWAY take you on a trip from the days of Bob James and Herbie Hancock to the future beat and soul sound of today. If you are looking for the perfect beat in 2011, we highly recommend to check out this record.
