Find a Place in Your Heart for Brainfeeder's Taylor McFerrin

Yes, he is part of THAT McFerrin lineage.

But that doesn’t haunt Taylor McFerrin, son of the iconic voice artist Bobby McFerrin. Taylor has found his own niche on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, and has even incorporated his father’s art of beatboxing into his jazzy instrumental hip hop work.

The title track on Place In My Heart, a three track collection, sounds more like it was put together by a band than by a producer, featuring guest vocals from RYAT.

The other two tracks find him getting back to the family business, using percussive sounds that are definitely processed samples of his own voice.

McFerrin dropped his video for “Place In My Heart” just a couple of weeks before this release. See below.
