Crush’s love affair with Carl Luis continues. This time we let Carl take the lead and he delivered. CSC #16 is an ode to Hip Hop and RnB the exquisite way only the /səˈdiːk/ (Arabic for “Man of his Word”) could see it. Raphael Saadiq, born in 1966 as Charles Ray Wiggins in Oakland, California, is an eclectic Producer, Arranger, Singer – the sweetest in RnBusiness. Since his back catalog is endless, this show interweaves favorites with other favorites, productions with arrangements, a crush with love ups, break ups, and anniversaries. Frequency by frequency, CSC #16 turns into a soft rug of enamored sounds ready for the Cashmere ummah to dance on.
