Flavor of the Week: Aloe Blacc

18 Jan

Orange County MC, Soul Singer, and multi-instrumentalist Aloe Blacc is blowing up, and rightfully so. The 90’s Hip Hop veteran (Emanon) is back with his most organic release to date, and his latest with Stone’s Throw Records.
His Southern California feel for Hip-Hop is mixed with a James Brown flavor for funk, and a ‘Motown meets Central American’ sense of a horn arrangment (Aloe’s parents are Panamanian immigrants). He’s a perfect modern example that genres are changing and we’re better off for it. Looks like the neo-soul movement is more than just a “Flavor of the Week.”
