As he always does about this time of year, DJ Jazzy Jeff recently held the 2016 edition of his Playlist Retreat. The Playlist Retreat is an intimate gathering of progressive artists for the purpose of inspiration, motivation and collaboration. It is an organic exchange between people who believe in the greater purpose of expression through music.
We get this well put together re-cap of the latest edition featuring Jazzy Jeff, DJ Day, Rhymefest, Daniel Crawford, SiR, DJ Excel, Aloe Blacc, James Poyser, Young Guru, Glenn Lewis, Natasha Diggs, 14KT, Lord Finesse, DJ Babu, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Gwen Bunn, Masego, J.Period and many more. That’s a whole lot of talent bunched up together right there. The clip shows the highlights of the experience with the artists speaking on how impactful the retreat was for them, and how it’s a rare opportunity to have real life interaction with some of your highly respected peers, as well as a chance to talk about more than music. Can’t even imagine the leg work that would go into putting something like this together, but it’s truly an inspiring and amazing collection of talent.
