We’re so excited about our partnership with The High Museum of Art’s Basquiat exhibition,
we decided to put out a Basquiat-inspired mixtape series! Each member of our company
has created a playlist that reminds them of the prolific JMB. Check out Scott’s mix:
In this playlist, I wanted to pay homage to Basquiat’s roots and his avant-garde aesthetic, ranging from old school to new school. Amongst the tracks you’ll find the lyricism and flow of New York rappers Run-D.M.C. & Nas; the sophisticated tonality of saxophone legends Thelonius Monk & John Coltrane; and, even a nod to his affiliation with pop icon Madonna. Blended together with such rappers as Kanye West & Anderson Paak, the ambient stylings of Alva Noto, and R&B artists The Internet – one is sure to find a set rich in complexity and content.
Basquiat Bash is May 6th at The High Museum of Art.
