Primus Luta Presents: The Vanguard vol. 2

We continue our exclusive series of mixes by Primus Luta with volume 2 of The Vanguard. As explained in the original post last week, The Vanguard is a series of mixes in four volumes whereby Primus Luta explores the ramifications and diversity of the new wave of music makers who have blurred not just geographical boundaries but also those of style and genre.

Volume two picks up where volume one left – a heady mix of beats, vocals and more mashed and mixed via the custom application scrtch developed in Plogue Bidule for the Monome and Stribe Duo. Each volume is accompanied by a visual interface in the form of an embed (see below) that displays the tracklist with additional interactive information alongside it.

Here’s some words on the project from Primus himself:

To borrow from Me’Shell NdegéOcello, this is an anthroplogical mix, compiled at the end of the first decade of the 21st century. The goal was to capture the changing sound of music. A change that draws no lines of division. It is bound to no genre, no social group, global not regional. In a constant state of flux, it will only continue to evolve and grow.

There are some who are threatened by this type of change. They wish to deny it, holding to the comfort zones of the past. Then there are the others. The Vanguard. Those who see the potential and thrive.

This series brings together over 125 artists, each in their own way charting a path on this new musical frontier. Listen carefully and take notes because indeed, this is the sound of tomorrow, today.

As announced originally we’ll be airing the first three volumes exclusively here on Rhythm Incursions before Percussion Lab airs the final and fourth volume. On March 19th Primus Luta will be launching his Heads Project.

So without further here is part 2 of The Vanguard featuring your favourite producers, singers, MCs and more in ways you’d never imagined to hear them. And that’s not even the half of it. Sit back and crank up loud.

Remember if you want the tracklist you must listen to the mix via the embed!
