Jesse Boykins III joins producer Gora Sou and a gang of various recording artists as a part of the Red Bull Music Academy. Each day, Red Bull is releasing a song from its The Various Assets- Not For Sale compilation, which includes the Madrid 2011 recording of "The Perfect Blues" between the Chicago born singer and the German producer. Find out how more about the experience behind "The Perfect Blues" and take a listen to the track below!
“This song is the perfect explanation for what it means to be a human being in love with danger and risk-taking in relationships,” says Jesse. It began as a loop of hand claps and gradually evolved into an emotive ballad worthy of applause. Dorian recalls “I loved the clap sounds Marc made, and when Jesse came in, he just killed it.”
Props to AO!
