Happy 32 birthday to my brother. Damn I’m getting old!
Digable Planets release their gold-selling debut album, “Reachin’ (A New Refutation Of Time And Space)”, on Elektra Records, on this day in 1993.
The album would be produced by group member Butterfly and would be heavily sampled-laden with strong jazz and funk influences as evidenced on the group’s anthemic smash hit “Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)” and “Nickel Bags.”
“Reachin’” would be peppered with 5% theology, black consciousness and new rhyme flows, giving it a unique and original sound.
