    Robert Glasper Experiment have announced North American tour dates in to support their debut Black Radio, which will be released by Blue Note Records on Feb. 28. The group will play NYC's The Highline Ballroom that day and the show will feature special guests including yasiin bey (Mos Def), Chrisette Michele, Lalah Hathaway and others. Tickets are currently on sale.

    Glasper also teamed up with Indaba Music, the pioneering online music creation site, to launch a remix contest for the song "Move Love" from Black Radio, which features vocals from rising stars KING. Indaba's international community of more than 600,000 musicians will be given each component of the song—including the individual vocal, drum, keyboard, and other tracks—and asked to create their own remix.

    Glasper will judge all of the entries and select the winner, who will receive a $500 cash prize, a royalty-free one-of-a-kind piano sample created by Glasper for use in an original composition and a signed copy of Black Radio. For more information, go here.
