And now after 4 years of crafty deliberation, ropeadope is breaking out the lab coats once again. We headed back into the studios, setting up shop in NYC and emerged with what is fast becoming the most anticipated record of the year. Grammy-winning producer Aaron "Ace" Levinson and ropeadope founder Andy Hurwitz have assembled another genre-bending tribute to perhaps America’s greatest cultural crown jewel – Harlem USA.
This album is too cool for its own good. An assemblage of some of the finest luminaries in the uptown jazz scene, The Harlem Experiment crafts a wildly enjoyable set to the rhythm of the landmark neighborhood. DJ scratches, spoken word, soul samples and sound bytes all commingle to create an album that lives up to the hype of the legendary Harlem World itself. The stories contained on The Harlem Experiment infuse life into a feeling that everyone thinks moved to Brooklyn. The album is too word-heavy in traditional song structure, but like the shy kid who speaks up, the vocals that appear on The Harlem Experiment burst through the speakers with force and meaning, demanding to be heard.
