Prophet is a pure funk from the San Francisco Bay Area, who, until this year, had only put his name to one record: an obscure private-press LP called Right On Time (1984, Treasure Records). Full of mind-blowing no-BS boogie, it now has a dedicated cult following, with original copies are still changing hands. Now he has a new album, his first in 34 years, and it still sounds ’84: Wanna Be Your Man, produced primarily with Mndsgn.
Kiefer is a pianist and producer on Stones Throw Records. He is also a frequent collaborator with others: a constant in Mndsgn’s live trio, shared the stage with Moses Sumney and Terrance Martin, and lent production talents to the likes of Kaytranada and Anderson .Paak.
Rejoicer (Yuvi Havkin) is a producer from Tel-Aviv, who splices together funk, hip-hop, breakbeats and jazz. He’s helped cultivate Israel’s modern beat movement, and fostered a community of international artists who contribute to his Raw Tapes label. He will drop a guest mix for this show.
