Joined by a mammoth roster of rising musical giants, REVIVE Music celebrates the arrival of its highly-anticipated sophomore album, Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1. The label holds court live in New York City at Le Poisson Rouge on September 2nd, 2015 to toast the project – a transformative 13-track compilation that marks the birth of the new cool and turns the concept of genre on its head once and for all. A feast for the senses, the show is a comprehensive performance of the triumphant, riveting and sonically forward tracks on the album packed with appearances from each of the featured musicians; Ray Angry, Igmar Thomas, Brandee Younger, Ben Williams, Keyon Harrold, Jaleel Shaw, Maurice Brown, Terry Slingbaum and an extended list of notable artists that contributed to the recording will grace the bandstand in honor of REVIVE’s resonant sophomore outing. Rotating sets on a circular stage, musicians will take turns playing their respective cuts from the seminal collection. DJ Raydar Ellis rounds out the performance on the turntables, capping each set with the electrifying and sonically forward interludes he produced for the project – a handful of short compositions boasting influences as varied as Lee Morgan Janet Jackson and J Dilla. DJ OP! of I Love Vinyl will join Ellis on the 1s and 2s for the after party. The entire affair will stream live worldwide during a special BOILER ROOM broadcast. The long-awaited fête of the first chapter in the Supreme Sonacy series, this event promises to be a groundbreaking amalgamation of sound and color that translates the contributions of the musicians assembled, celebrates their muses and elevates REVIVE from guardians of the innovative to purveyors of the spiritual.

Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1 Album Release Concert
“Sonacy” is the undefined, unexplained derivative of sound a melodic experience without conformity or the neat packaging of category. Much too expansive to explain, it just is. Born from a collision of sound and matter, it is the place where musical performance elevates to a transformative spiritual experience. Pushing past earthly conventions and into the unknown, sonacy alludes to the supreme, transcendent power that exists at the intersection of every musical tradition. It is this sound and its creators that have been the heart of REVIVE’s mission for almost a decade. Captained by founder Meghan Stabile, the organization has been the nucleus of one of the most important artistic advocacy initiatives of this era. Stabile’s distinct skills as a concert producer and promoter, coupled with the artistic purview of trusted musicians have birthed a brand of unique, genrebending experiences. These events have positioned REVIVE as the fearless champion of virtuosity and allowed Stabile to shape a movement. Now, at the brink of the tenyear mark, Revive Music captures the spirit of its trademark on wax with Supreme Sonacy Volume 1. Wearing the hat of executive producer, Stabile enlisted a stellar roster of broadranged musicians including Igmar Thomas, Marc Cary, Marcus Strickland, Raydar Ellis, Christie Dashiell, Casey Benjamin, Terry Slingbaum, Brandee Younger, Keyon Harrold, Maurice Brown, Jaleel Shaw, Ray Angry, Chris Potter, James Genus, Kris Bowers and Ben Williams (courtesy of Concord Records)and the legendaryJeff “Tain” Watts. The lineup represents the Revive narrative, which is steeped in the importance of community and innovation. Born from a giant leap of faith, the Supreme Sonacy Vol. 1 compilation is the first release of it’s kind from Blue Note Records. Under the leadership of Don Was, Blue Note stands at the 75-year mark poised to make history yet again. In partnership with REVIVE, Blue Note has placed a finger on the pulse of yet another sonic rebellion and positioned itself at the front line in the fight to ensure the survival of quality music. While REVIVE looks to the past for inspiration, Blue Note and Don Was look to REVIVE for the future. “Revive is positioned at the heart of this decade’s progressive music. I can think of no better way to honor the tradition of Blue Note Records than to associate ourselves with such a forward-looking, activist organization.”
