Judah and DubMD Presents The Lupita Nyong’o Instrumentals Free Album
I love when dope conceptual projects come my way. Unfortunately, this one got hung up in my spam folder until today. So as I sit readying myself for Moogfest 2014 here in Asheville, SC. I pressed play and I knew right off the bat that I had to share this with my bboys and bgirls.
Apparently, JUDAH used Lupita Nyong’o as his muse to create this really fresh album of instrumentals entitled The Lupita Nyong’o Instrumentals presented by DubMD. Judah weaves an impressively soulful web of boom bap instrumentals around the premise of admiration for the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o. It even comes complete with interludes directly from Lupita herself.
Interestingly enough, one of the stand out tracks, in my humble opinion, is the soul-fresh track entitled “You Didn’t Leave In Vain [Amy Winehouse Tribute]” which is as it states is an Amy Winehouse Tribute. Still, there are a good number of stand out tracks here such as the infectious “Her Touch After The Show” and the street corner crooner’s delight “That Heart Breaking Kinda Love.” No frontin’… I had a few of these joints on repeat. So much, in fact, that it made it tough to get through the entire album. Loads of bangers…
All in all, I’d be remiss if I didn’t share this dope project with those of you whom I know will enjoy this. Oh did I mention it’s free of charge? Well it is. Be sure to peep it asap.
According to the press release….
A muse was needed by JUDAH to create the sequel to his globally acclaimed “Amber Rose Instrumentals,” and who better than the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o. The visionary producer links up with UK’s Dub MD for a second time to deliver this sonic art exhibition. “The Lupita Instrumentals” was inspired by the transcendent beauty and class of Lupita Nyong’o, who is known for her Academy Award® winning performance in “12 Years a Slave.”
JUDAH, whose highly-demanded presence has painted sonic sound-scapes for noted names like Wale, Clipse, Ras Kass, Stat Quo, GLC and others. JUDAH took a similar approach with the sonics and samples for the ‘Lupita Instrumentals’ that he did with the ‘Amber Rose Instrumentals’ but added touches of additional elements to represent the uniqueness of Lupita. Really, who would pass on the chance of making a great body of work with Lupita Nyong’o?
