"The Stuyvesants” is a collaborative effort between music producer Allan Cole (Algorythm), and record collector
Victor Birks (Flwrpt). Both reside in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Darien . The two wanted to work together on a project where they could incorporate several of their talents, related to music and design. They wanted to do this under a moniker that would pay homage to the ’70s. The collaboration allowed them to do four major things, design, beat dig, produce amazing music, and simply have fun.

"Sunrise in the Stuy” is a whimsical and enchanting song. The loop of the horns and how they come in at what seem to be odd counts is a highlight for me. This song, to me, is the space in-between when a dream ends and when you wake up. I can definitely see myself in bed when this song comes on, and the climax at -34 is the morning stretch. Or maybe it’s the moment I open my eyes.
More notable songs that I encourage you to check are “W.O.M.A.N., ”a sultry track that encourages a slow dance; “Seldom Seen,” which has a vocal chop and a breakdown fit for a king, and “Green Ave. Anthem” which is just as fanciful as “
The Stuyvesants’ album is, in my opinion, perfect for any occasion.
Their goal was to pay homage to the 70s, and I think they achieved that goal and more. Any listener can tell that Algorythm and Flwprt took their time to perfectly craft this album, and it is prevalent from track 1 to 25. Each song is crafted so that either they are short enough to always make you want more, or long enough that you still want more, thus hitting the repeat button. There is a song for everyone on this project, and a song for any occasion. I recommend anyone to give this a try, because there is no room for disappointment on this project.
