Producer Mumbles new album Transformations/Illuminations is available on Itunes now and everywhere else later this month. Features Aceyalone on tracks that could have been Book of Human Language sessions, legendary Brazillian singer Flora Purim, Cut Chemist, Blu and others. While the album has a live indian instrumentation feel to a lot of it, its in a completely different direction than say Bombay the Hard Way or Madlib’s latest beat konducta in India joint with samples from Egon’s indian stash or some Timbaland beat. link

Mumbles – Rise Reprise w/ Cut Chemist

We recently asked Cut Chemist about working with Mumbles:

GG: What was your involvement on the new Mumbles album?

CC: My role as an active participant was very small. I did cuts on Rise Reprise. I think thats about it. My role as a supporter of Mumbles and his album is and was quite involved. We’ve have been sharing music together for a lot of years. I dont think there has been anyone thats inspired me to make music more than him. We are cut from the same cloth with the ethic: find music from separate sources that were made to go together and put them together. He hasnt lost a step with this album. His use of samples is seemless as though it were made from live musicians. I had input on ruff mixes and giving my advice on certain things just like he did for my album.
