Shot by Eric Coleman for mochilla.com, the minds @ Plug Research & Shafiq have embarked on an ongoing, seven part EPK series for his album Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka and the process of making the album. Above in Part One, the musical wizard also shares some of his credits accumulated during his twenty years of production history.
Part Two features Shafiq talking about the bubblin’ Los Angeles music scene and the various creative folks that have been a big part in helping to develop that scene to a worldwide audience.
Throughout the seven segments, Coleman brings in several of musicians and artists that played a major role in creating the album. In Part Two, the director down with Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, the featured bass player, who plays bass on the entire Shafiq En’ A-Free-Ka album.
In other words, one third of the ever mystic SRCP gives you insight into how one of the best albums of the year (yeah, I said it and meant it) came to be.
