Altered State


An all-vinyl program for music heads seeking trippy soundscapes across the jazz spectrum, Altered State focuses on the pivotal late ‘60s through the 1980s — when synthesized waveforms, drum machines and experimental effects pedals transformed straight-ahead sounds into something otherworldly. From the dusty crates of swap meets and flea markets throughout the Americas, Africa and Asia, DJ Mr. Wriff mines forgotten gems, jogs our nostalgia with well-known outfits of the era, and tops it off with a sampling of the contemporary acts that seminal ‘60s psych-jazz inspired.
