BADBADNOTGOOD – Boogie No. 69

A little different vibe from Toronto jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD, uploaded “in support” of their SXSW 2015 show this weekend with Ghostface Killah. The tune is the b-side of a limited 7-inch released on Innovative Leisure. And since I couldn’t think of a better vibe to send you off into your well-deserved weekend, I hope you all have a great one!

BADBADNOTGOOD – Velvet

What you hear above is the first piece of original music by Canadian jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD since their album III came out on Innovative Leisure earlier this year. Since their is no additional info about a future release, I assume it was merely put out to promote their October live tour on the West Coast.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Shame (BBNG Remix)

Years and years of hard work finally seem to pay of for Toronto jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD. Following two free albums and several live EPs, they are now signed to Los Angeles’ Innovative Leisure with their third album available now. Madlib’s Rappcats label is giving you an extra reason to buy their record, as it shares an exclusive remix from the Freddie Gibbs album Piñata when buying from the label store.

Sounds Like… BadBadNotGood

Some time last weekend I came across the Sounds Like… Tokimonsta – and then I decided to not write about. Nah, but from there on I came across the first episode of that series, which was centered around Canadian jazz band BadBadNotGood who got to visit Bootsy Collins in his studio.

“Sounds Like…” is a series of videos by the Red Bull Music Academy, who also celebrate their 15 anniversary this year with a new book and I’m sure there’s more to come!
