Rainbow Blonde Records proudly releases the 10th Anniversary Edition of José James critically acclaimed sophomore album Blackmagic.
Featuring lo-fi hip-hop production from legendary producers Flying Lotus, Moodymann and Taylor McFerrin, Blackmagic saw James embracing his role as “the Jazz singer for the hip-hop generation.” Highlights include the Soulquarian meets Curtis Mayfield vibe of “Code,” the Moodymann-produced Marvin Gaye tribute “Detroit Loveletter” and the spaced-out jazz meets hip-hop of “Blackmagic.” James throws down the gauntlet and takes a soulful journey into the history of black music, skillfully connecting the dots between soul, R&B hip-hop and London’s brokenbeat and dubstep movements.
