Black Milk has done an exceptional job in the last five years being his own artist. Once perceived as a J Dilla under-study, B.M. has made his own sound, made his own decision, and worked in live instrumentation beautifully—with as many Gospel influences as Detroit Electronic. In another unique frame of thought, Black unleashed a song still in its raw state. “The Kraft,” which is believed to pay homage to German group Kraftwerk (word to Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force’s “Planet Rock”) comes from the Fuzz, Freqs & Colorssessions (Milk’s project with Upendo Taylor). The composition is a true journey in sound, showing that Elzhi’s homie is going even further to the left. Fans of Madlib, Steinski and DJ Shadow will dig this, as I certainly do.
