This week on Rhythm Lab Radio, we paid tribute to Hugh Masekela, who passed away on Jan. 23.  In the first hour, we featured new tracks from Tom Misch, Jesse Boykins III, Chris Dave and The Drumhedz, Nightmares on Wax, Rejjie Snow, and Korean artist Yaeji.

We also played a beautiful song from Hello World Choir. The project is a culmination of a one-year-long choir collaboration featuring a Sudanese female choir of seven girls & women between 11-27, an Egyptian volunteer and a Greek singer/artist.

In the second hour, we featured new tracks from Peggy Gou, Grime artist Slowthai, Chris Dave and The Drumhedz, and more. Plus, we had an amazing rendition of Dilla tune from the Abstract Orchestra. The Orchestra is led by Saxophonist Rob Mitchell and seeks to reflect the diversity of music sampled by Hip-Hop producers by presenting music that has the complexity of jazz, framed within the simpler structures of Hip-Hop.
