about

"I found out about Mike Blankenship after spotting a random Sy Smith Facebook status. She appears on Spooky Fox, one of the 14 tracks that appear on his newly released Living for the Future album and was giving the uninitiated a heads up. With its combination of Jazz, Gospel and even a little afrobeat, the album is perfect to chill or relax to. There’s even a gem to take you back to the days when Hip Hop married Neo Soul with Something Beautiful. A smoothed out version of Dilla’s chop of The Vibrettes’ drums provides a heads up to it’s urban lineage before they launch into a revealing Let’s Ride redux at the end of the track. Press play, and reminisce while taking a listen to something beautiful. Thanks for puttin’ us on Sy!" - Bama Love Soul
