The Stuyvesants are a musical match made in heaven between music producer Allan Cole (aka Algorythm) and record collector Darien Victor Birks (aka Flwrpt). After listening to any of their music you can tell the duo live in the crates. Refined is the latest album in the duo's collection of nostalgic tunes, reminiscent of a time when women looked like Diana Ross and Pam Grier. The duo who have been friends for years, meeting as middle schoolers in Maryland and then reconnecting in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, have a timeless chemistry. With tracks such as "Block Party Season," "The Dilemma" and "The Stuy Forever," the album takes you through a hot summer in Bed-Stuy. Listening to this album definitely invokes some cool throwback imagery. Think about playing Refined at your next low-key cocktail gathering or cookout, you just may grow sideburns and buy a Cadillac to match the purple velvetiness that is Refined.
