Why do we like this?

Kamasi Washington released one of the heaviest records of the year with the The Epic. Fuck a single visionary image, worlds exist within the very appropriately titled LP. If you've ever caught the L.A. magician live, you've surely experienced a slice of that magic yourself.

A part of the greatness of The Epic is its embrace of a unpopular black identity. The man was raised in South L.A., playing and practicing at the famed World Stage in Leimert Park around a cadre of black elders and black contemporaries. He dons unapologetically African-themed garbs in photo shoots and live performances. His father plays on the album. He dedicates an entire sweeping ballad to his grandmother.  

DJ Kon of Kon & Amir remixes Kamasi's grand "Re Run Home" to bring it to the dance floor, further fleshing out the habitats present in the music. Jazz truly is the genesis of all music, and you can tell by how little Kon needed to add to the track to give it that dance bounce.
