Red Bull Music Academy alumnus Naphta considers Sun Ra to be a pretty big musical influence. Enough so that his entire new album is dedicated to the late jazz great. Titled Sun & Ra Cuts, Naphta samples the work of Sun Ra in this quirky, original spin of jazz and dance music. Listeners will find themselves more challenged on tracks like “Space Dance”, while “Nuclear War” is a deep grooving piece of house. Sun & Ra Cuts is available for stream and download below.
