In 1996, J.ROCC released a mix tape called Syndromes. We didn’t come across it until 2001, but once we did it forever changed our lives. ArtDontSleep has been profoundly influenced by The Funky President of the Beat Junkie collective known as J.ROCC. Fast forward to 2013 and we thought it would be amazing to bring this mix tape experience to life by one of our favorite arranger composers today, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Miguel is one of the few people on planet Earth that can take a masterpiece like Syndromes, a piece that is non conventional in nature, and elevate it to the next level. Bear witness to one of the freshest concerts happening in all of 2013. Something so unique and original that we actually don’t have a precedent to show you as an example.
