EDITORS’ NOTES

Talk about “rare groove.” Lance Ferguson joined with members of Hiatus Kaiyote, The Putbacks, and his band The Bamboos to create jazz, disco, and funk beats and breaks that he pressed onto vinyl—no sample clearances required. Ferguson then turned them into luscious beds of music for his favorite MCs, producers, and singers to jump on. The result is this collection of hip-hop, electronica, and soul that transcends time and style. Songs like “Back to You,” “Don’t Stop,” “Fly By Wire,” and “2+1” escort listeners into a basement party that goes from sundown to sunrise. Singer Kylie Auldist makes a breakout performance here, taking four Raw Material tracks to church.
