A long time fan of Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, DJ, turntablist and producer DJ Logic has taken five tracks from the band's acclaimed 2010 release Rise & Shine and reworked the original session files into a set of funky, dubbed out remixes. The album Rise & Shine Remixes is available direct from the All Stars at shows on their Positive Revolution Tour, on their bandcamp site, and will be released on iTunes and Amazon in the coming weeks.
As the founder of Project Logic and frequent collaborator with jazz and rock artists such as Vernon Reid, John Mayer, Medeski Martin & Wood, Jack Johnson, Christian McBride, Carley Simon and more, DJ Logic established himself as one of the go to DJs for live band collaboration. His improvisational approach to composition and production is captured on more than 8 albums under the Project Logic or DJ Logic name.
"The ability of music to transcend borders and cultures is one of its most powerful characteristics. The Sierra Leone Refugee All-Stars have literally survived through their struggles because of this, and I am honored to be part of this great remix." - DJ Logic
