Experimental hip-hop group Shabazz Palaces is set to record a live direct-to-acetate album at Third Man Studios in Nashville on January 17.

Very few records from last year got us as excited about the current state and hopeful for the future state of music as Shabazz Palaces’ Lese Majesty. Easily the most oft-spun record on the Third Man office turntable in the second half of 2014, it was imperative that we bless the beginning of 2015 with a live direct-to-acetate recording from these psychedelic warriors from the Pacific Northwest. Shabazz Palaces’ obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering it’s own sonic boom. We couldn’t be more excited to host Shabazz Palaces in our Blue Room transcribing their astral suites direct-to-acetate for a live audience, on Saturday January 17th we all blast off together.
