People Make The World Go Round

Melting Pot

Released: 22nd April 2013 | 9 track funk album

With his debut album People Make The World Go Round the French producer is taking us on a trip down memory lane by paying tribute to the jazz funk masters who's music shaped the musical DNA of hip-hop. From Roy Ayers and Lonnie Liston Smith to Freddie Hubbard and the Heath Brothers. Songs like Everybody Loves The Sunshine, Red Clay or Smilin' Billy Suite have been a staple amongst hip-hop and jazz fans alike for a long time. But the album is more than a sample song-book of 90ties rap. Medline reinterpretates the songs in his very own way. A beatmaker by trade, Medline acts as a one man orchestra playing every instrument himself. with a strong focus on the flute. Think Herbie Mann joins Yesterdays New Quintett with a headnod towards broken beat. On three songs he is joined by Roni Alkekengi who's sultry vocals (and French accent) are a perfect match.

The album sleeve has been designed by Turkish artist Gizem Wintah. A limited vinyl edition of the album comes with three prints of Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd and The Stylistics. 500 numbered copies only.

Last summer, Medline introduced his album with the 7 single Everybody Loves The Sunshine. The title track People Makes The World Go Round has been available on a limited vinyl only split single with Suff Daddy, released in conjunction with HHV. On New York label Names You Can Trust, Medline has just released a cumbia 7 under his Alliacara 2743 moniker.
