Onyx Collective
Lower East Suite Part Three

After the first two instalments of their Lower East Suite series garnered considerable interest, NYC neo-jazz ensemble Onyx Collective complete the trio with an LP. The group's music combines serious jazz/free-jazz chops with techniques from music concrete, hip-hop, neo-soul and other genres, and is imbued with the same sparky DIY aesthetic as fellow Big Apple upstarts Wiki and Princess Nokia. It makes for a dense, evocative listening experience.

Nick Hakim / Onyx Collective
Vincent Tyler / The Pawn Broker / Rat Race

Nick Hakim - one of those Mac Demarco/Tyler, The Creator/Steve Lacy types - unites with up-and-coming NYC post-jazzers Onyx Collective for a short, sharp EP. Only the gritty neo-soul slap of ‘Vincent Tyler’ is anything close to what you might have expected going into this record. ‘The Pawn Broker’ and ‘Rat Race’ are hard and heavy - the latter is grungy and the former legitimately sounds like Thou. This EP is a very pleasant surprise.
