On November 15th, Yasiin Bey will host a 28 minute listening session dubbed Negus. It consist of 8 compositions recorded in London in 2015, which were produced by Lord Tusk, Steven Julien and Acyde. Curated by Lauren Zelaya, this is the first time the recording will be heard in the United States and will debut in Bey’s hometown of Brooklyn.
Negus is presented as an immersive sound installation that can only be experienced in person. The recording is unavailable for purchase via digital or physical platforms. Yasiin Bey designed the multi-track recording as an installation to encourage people to be fully present while listening to it.
