about

Notes from Starita & UnderCover
When we set out on this journey to create a tribute album dedicated to A Tribe Called Quest, I didn't have any idea how to approach this album as the producer… In hindsight, that was a blessing. Something told me to just allow these songs to evolve and take their new shape naturally AND to not overthink it; to feel instead of think and allow the spirit to guide the process...'The Spirit' of A Tribe Called Quest’s music. As a result, this album reflects the reverberation of that spirit moving through all of the amazing artists, musicians, engineers, producers and studio walls. Much gratitude to A Tribe Called Quest for the profound influence they have had on our musical journey, and a personal dedication to Phife Dawg for connecting me (and now us) to the Tribe.
