El Commandante, AKA El Michels

04/19/2009

Hip hop in essence is the recycling and recreation of music, including African rhythms, jazz, blues, rock, funk, and soul. Now, El Michels is the recreation of hip hop. With his new album, to be released on April 21st, El Michels takes the classic Enter The Wu-Tang: (36th Chambers) by Wu Tang, and remasters it into a soulful and jazzy instrumental album entitled Enter The 37th Chamber. The album speaks for itself, taking the instrumentals from the original album, and remastering them into a live band format. Simply amazing, oh did I mention–who knew a white band could churn out something so funky, as SFCritic, I’m here to share:
