From The Desk Of Global Noize: New York Back In The 1960s

Jason Miles has been around for a long time, programming synths for and jamming with the likes of Miles Davis and Luther Vandross, let alone producing other side projects over the years. DJ Logic has been around, too, working with ?uestlove, Vernon Reid, Marcus Miller and many more. The two have been through a lot together, traveling the world from Japan to Marrakech before finally releasing the first Global Noize album in 2008, later joined permanently by Indian vocalist Falu on their latest, A Prayer For The Planet (Lightyear/EMI). Global Noize will be guest editing all week. Read our brand new Q&A with Logic and Miles.

Miles: It’s a time period I just can’t forget. I spent four summers and holidays playing in bands in the Borscht Belt hotels in the Catskill Mountains and learning about life. It was funny because I used to leave high school and go and play music for two months, where I wouldn’t go to sleep till four or five a.m. I would then have to come back to Brooklyn and go to high school and go sleep at 11 p.m. and get back into school. Hard!
