#ManCrushMonday: Tall Black Guy
Easy like a Sunday morning
Beats and beers pretty much form two major components of a well-lived Sunday. With Sideshow's return of the family-friendly party series Sunday at the Shed, you can expect just that. For their homecoming, they're bringing Tall Black Guy (a.k.a. Terrel Wallace), the beat-maker and sound-manipulator whose recent release in 2016 is your go-to anthem for lazy weekends.
The Detroit-born, Chicago-raised and UK-based producer has upped his collaborations, included more live instrumentation and jazz elements in his second full-length album, Let's Take a Trip. A follow-up to his debut, 8 Miles to Moenart in 2013, the 13-track album is born out of a dream Wallace had while he was on a train. Taking train samples, his mellow and layered sample-based sound is encapsulated into an album that pretty much sums up a journey for the producer with a standard set-up of a Sony (Sonic Foundry) 7.0 and a MIDI controller.
Supporting Tall Black Guy are Aaron DRM from Bastard Jazz Recordings and Sideshow DJs Shellsuit and Stew. Listen to Tall Black Guy below, and see you this Sunday.
