Red Hook Brooklyn is quite an interesting place to visit. Upon first glance one sees docks and old buildings upon them. It looks like a forgotten dockyard from a different time. In truth that is what Red Hook is. But if one looks closer and explores more one will encounter many surprises. Art galleries held in old buildings flourish with unique works and unique people. There is a vibe there that cannot be compared easily to anywhere else, at least not in my opinion. Red Hook is great, it attracts the kind of people I enjoy. One such person is Amon of Analog Players Society.
In 2009 deep in the heart of Red Hook Brooklyn, Amon started his project in his own studio called Hook Studio. Analog Players Society is lead by Amon but features a collective of a variety of other artists. In the past such artists included were TV On The Radio, Tortured Soul, Escort, Beirut, Si*Se, Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble and more. Last time Analog Players Society released the well received and critically acclaimed album Hurricane Season In Brooklyn. This time APS returns with a new venture inspired by West African music featuring a collective of Guinean musicians and vocalists including Missia Saran Diabate, Petite Conde and Missia Saran Diabate. The new album is interestingly titled CKY to JFK.
This three track EP is sure to be enjoyed by many of our dear Generation Bass readers. It also contributes to my goal of sharing and promoting fresh new music that isn’t always club friendly homogenized music that worships the now over-used and over-emphasized “drop.”
