John Robinson & PVD - Modern Vintage [LP]
Modern Vintage is the new collaboration album from veteran emcee John Robinson (aka Lil Sci of world renown Hip-Hop group
Scienz Of Life) and prolific drummer, composer, producer and band-leader Pat Van Dkye (aka PVD). John Robinson and PVD
originally met at a show in 2008 and since then their chemistry has grown organically and has developed into the duo performing
many formal shows together at venues like SOB's, Blue Note NYC, LPR and others around the NY-NJ Tristate area.
Modern Vintage spells out the approach in which this album was made from front to back: The music was composed with a
combination of modern technology software mixed with vintage synths and outboard gear, all blended seamlessly with live
instrumentation being the foundation. The lyrics and concepts were all spontaneously crafted in the studio, session by session, by
letting the soundscapes speak to the lyricist similar to how vintage recordings of the 60's & 70's were created.
''I took a much more structured songwriting approach to the lyrics on this album; my goal from the beginning of making this record
was to take advantage of the fact that I am working with PVD- a composer/musician and not just a beat maker/producer, which
definitely makes this record different from my other releases. This one is for all the true music lovers worldwide''
says John Robinson.
PVD states ''making this record was a dream come true. From the very first session, we set out to craft quality songs that capture
a cohesive vibe and feel good. In many cases, JR was writing to merely a sketch of what actually ended up on the record. It felt
great to work with an artist who trusted me enough to lend his talents to the music not knowing where I would take it sonically. Live
drums, keys, guitars, horns, and synths give this record a distinctly human feel that is present in all of my favorite records, old and
new. A modern-day true Hip-Hop record, grounded firmly in the traditions of jazz, funk, and soul music.''
