You might not have heard about Frankie Reyes and neither have I. Turns out it’s one of the many monikers by Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker, also known as Gifted & Blessed. So, I obviously came across this by pure chance and I’m glad I did, for I’m a sucker for handmade things like this 7-inch record of Technoindigenous Studies. For now you can listen to one of the two tracks on the record and pre-order your copy from the GB store. Out on June 3rd, 2014!
Roland Radio is a monthly webcast presented by Los Angeles online station dublab and Roland, manufacturer of electronic music instruments. In their latest session, they invited Brainfeeder associate Ras G and GB aka Gifted & Blessed, among others.
For more of these, check out previous sessions featuring Dâm-Funk, The Egyptian Lover, or Daedelus.
Big thanks to Mr Beatnick for the heads up on the latest release from the Eglo family. It comes from LA’s Gifted and Blessed and it’s his second release as The Abstract Eye.
A great and well fitting addition to the Eglo roster, if you ask me and I can’t wait to hold the vinyl in my hands. You can pick up your copy from Kudos (haven’t seen it elsewhere yet) or go for the digital release from GB’s Bandcamp page.
June 20, 2012 The album was taken down for no apparent reason, but you can listen to snippets on Juno and Rush Hour. It also seems the release has been out since April already, sorry for the misinformation!
