CLASHBACK Mixtape with Saul Williams, Yung vul & More

saul williams

Hailing from New Orleans, the Dominic Minix Quartet aka Yung vul plays improvised music that explores genres like jazz, hip-hop, R&B, soul, and rock to culminate a music free from the constraints of discrete genres. In this genre-bending monthly series, Yung vul collaborates with a different musical guest each month. 

This month, we collaborate with our friends at Preservation Hall to host the first of the Salon Series at Three Keys featuring very special guest poet, singer and songwriter Saul Williams, backed by our own resident Yung vul band for an "Afropunk Clashback Mixtape Live" with a B2B afterparty by DJ RQ Away and DJ Lil Jodeci

MartyrLoserKing has just tagged his screen name onto the White House lawn via remote drone. He’s working from a remote e-waste camp in Burundi, Central Africa, neighboring the more well-known Rwanda, with equipment scrapped together from our old Dell PC towers and Sidekick IIs. Homeland Security, the NSA, and the CIA are tracing his signal back to a place that isn’t on the map or on the grid, and the alert level rises when he hacks NASA just to show he can do it.

At least, that’s what Saul Williams will tell you when you ask about his upcoming album and the story it’s inspired. Written and recorded between Senegal, Reunion Island, Paris, Haiti, and New Orleans and New York, Martyr Loser King is a multimedia project that engages the digital dialogue between the 1st and 3rd Worlds, and the global street sounds that yoke the two. “In Senegal, I was buying iPhones for $20, Beats for $10, because they get all the influx from China, with no regulation,” Williams explains. “So everyone’s online. Everyone’s high tech.” He cites Beyoncé, Fredo Santana, and Haitian field recordings as musical inspirations for his self-produced 6th album, straining trap hi-hats and mbira strokes together for a nuanced, entirely original sound. “I’m just letting you know what I’m reading and seeing while I’m writing. When I’m writing, the music leads.”
