This Song: Cautious Clay On “B.O.B” by Outkast

Posted by on Apr 10, 2019

When Cautious Clay saw the video for Outkast’s “B.O.B” for the first time, the combination of the duo’s rapid fire rap style, techno influenced production and hyper-saturated psychedelic visuals blew his 7-year-old mind. On this episode, he tells us how that experience continues to have a profound impact on his own work, especially on his new project “Table of Context.” Plus, he explores how Outkast, along with his beat-boxing flute teacher,  taught him to approach creativity without boundaries.

 Cautious Clay just released a new EP called Table of Context

No Bad News is the final track from Mélat’s latest album, MéVen. The track, produced by The SevenTH, focuses on taking advantage of good times and chasing freedom despite how life may try to weigh you down.

The video is a collaboration with No Sleep Films: shot and directed by Isaac Rodriguez, produced by Cynthia Bergen. While the song itself has many layers, the video depicts the pressures and influences surrounding Mélat and her attempts to find freedom and avoid being consumed by temptation.

Liner Notes

King Curtis

Posted by on Jun 11, 2015

King Curtis was an American saxophonist, who played not only jazz, but R&B, rock n’ roll, and funk as well. His style was powerful and poignant, allowing moments to fully expand and develop. Unfortunately Curtis died young, murdered at the age of 37. In this installment of Liner Notes, Rabbi and jazz historian Neil Blumofe talks about what the life and legacy of King Curtis can teach us today.
