Melvin Van Peebles x Heliocentrics

UK heavyweight outfit the Heliocentrics have backed some seriously cool cats - Mulatu Astatke, and more recently, Orlando Julius. Their next collab is with legendary film maker and musician, Melvin Van Peebles... 

Via Rappcats: "Melvin Van Peebles – filmmaker, musician, playwright, actor, writer, B52 pilot, stock broker, cad, inventor of "Blaxploitation" and inspiration to Madlib and Quasimoto.

He's pretty much done it all, and he's hasn't begun to slow down despite being in his early 80s. He's recorded a new album with Heliocentrics that will be released next week worldwide, and is available NOW at Rappcats."
