Released: Oct 2008
Label: Old Tacoma Records
Taking unexpected aesthetic cues from the folk label Takoma, Old Tacoma's Way Pavers comp presents five up-and-comers all working variously at the seams between soul, disco, hip-hop and abstract electronics. Influences like Stevie Wonder, Dinosaur L, the Tom Tom Club and Madlib inform the proceedings, but each artist's pair of cuts offers intriguing snapshots of unique styles well on their way to greatness. Consider this a primer for your favorite new scene, and see where it leads you.
