Future Now Series ft Taylor McFerrin, José James & Robert Glasper Experiment
There is precious little decent footage floating around of Taylor McFerrin live. I saw him in Ireland last Autumn and was thoroughly impressed by his set - somewhere between beatboxing, vocal percussion, singing and electronica, which sounds gimmicky but it actually just seems very natural (perhaps not surprising for Bobby McFerrin's son). Back in the day when Rahzel went through a phase of doing a live gig in Brighton every couple of weeks, after the initial "wow" moments you did find yourself standing there hoping he'd wrap it up. Taylor's sets are much more like watching a soulful electronic live band you can dance to - only he does it all himself.
You can catch Taylor McFerrin live in London with Daedelus and Kutmah on Friday 13th April at Village Underground. We have two tickets to give away on the PMOI Facebook page later this week.
