Take a vision quest with DJ Day on his masterpiece Land Of 1,000 Chances. Repping Palm Springs til the day he dies, Day took some serious chances trying to create his latest effort and it paid off for himself and the musical universe. Getting praise from Gilles Peterson himself, the album is a patchwork of sun baked styles taking what Dj Shadow did with Endtroducing and throwing it into a mixing bowl with Sungoddess era Ramsey Lewis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and YNQ era Madlib. Seeing a broader spectrum of musicality in '1,000 Chances' than previous efforts, this is surely to be a classic in the modern funk, jazz world. This deluxe, limited pressing of Day’s Land Of 1000 Chances LP boasts a groundbreaking animal-friendly leather casebound LP (the first of its kind) with a foil-stamped gold back and removable Polaroid photograph. Recommended.
