Boomkat Product Review:
In Planet E's 20th year, Carl Craig hands his 'Where Am I' production for The Tribe aka Marcus Belgrave, Phil Ranelin and Wendell Harrison, over to Agoria and Kyle Hall for plush contemporary interpretations. Agoria's 'By The Fireplace' version is a luxurious movement swooning with velvet brushed bass and enriched with lush string orchestrations. Kyle Hall's doesn't quite live up to the maturity of Agoria's seductive sound, but comes authentically close with a sumptuous rearrangement that's at least the poshest track we've heard him produce. For context and balance, the sublime original exemplifies the pinnacle of Detroit jazz sophistication.
