“Limited edition of 500 copies on white vinyl of Jose James' 2nd solo album, exclusively released through hhv.de in collaboration with the nice people at Brownswood. This marks the very first release of the full album on proper vinyl.

 The production on "Blackmagic" is handled by some of the most talented producers of this decade, including beats by Flying Lotus, Moodymann, Taylor McFerrin, Gideon Van Gelder, DJ Mitsu The Beats and Jose James himself.” - HHV

“On Blackmagic, James forges deeper into 21st century soul and experimental territory, without giving up his jazz chops. Enlisting Flying Lotus and a number of other producers, this is a late-night, groove record that allows hip-hop, club jazz, and lithe funk to accent -- rather than drive -- his smooth, sultry baritone. His approach, while more innovative this time out, feels no less organic.

 As a whole, Blackmagic is skillfully sequenced and intelligently arranged to avoid neo-soul or jazz clichés -- there isn’t a hint of artifice on it. This is 21st century jazzed-out soul at its best; and in the spirit of both traditions, it creates something new from traces of the familiar.” - AllMusic
