DIGIPACK EDITION

Lehman’s music has always drawn from disparate sources in distinctive ways, but with "Sélébéyone", he takes an unexpected turn: drawing, from modern jazz, Senegalese rap, live electronics, and underground hip-hop, to create a unique form of urban experimentalism. The project stands apart from almost every other jazz and hip-hop collaboration that has preceded it: this is not an album where live musicians imitate repetitive samples in 4/4 time.

Instead, the musical elements, shifting rhythms, electro-acoustic harmonies, and contemporary sound design, are wholly integrated with the lyrical content. Add to that the unique juxtaposition of English and Wolof that permeates the record and one gets the sense of the development of a whole new musical universe.
