From The Desk Of Global Noize: Public Enemy’s “It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back”

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.

DJ Logic: This is a great album from beginning to end, with amazing production from the Bomb Squad. It’s also a soundtrack to what we are experiencing today at Occupy Wall Street and around the world.
