There aren’t many artists as versatile as Kariem Riggins, but it took the man his entire career in jazz/soul/hip-hop/funk/r&b/funk up ’til now to create a solo album, so you know that ain’t no half-assed record. Let the funky drummer from the motor city bring some madness into your life and take in the atmospheric visuals accompanying these tunes. If it tastes like more, you’re in luck: his album Alone Together is on sale right now.


1982 was when Jaap van der Doelen aka J.Monkey shot his way out his mom dukes. A mere two years later he was already battling Big Brother and The Illuminati. Whenever he has time to spare from those efforts he writes (about music, mostly), hosts a radio show and designs graphics for a living. He lives in The Netherlands where he continues to be winning.
