Tux Funk

With Daft Punk grabbing all disco-funk attention, and with reason, and Justin working a formal wear revival, we’d like to point to a mysterious 3-song EP: the Tuxedo EP by Tuxedo Funk. Mysterious, as it is unconfirmed who is the brains behind the music. Tuxedo is rumored to be the pairing of Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One. One is a renowned Rap producer from Seattle, known for his solo work and productions for e.g. 50 Cent, and as part of G-Unit. Mayer Hawthorne needs no introduction, scoring again with his most recent single Designer Drug, taken from his third full-length album Where Does This Door Go, due July 16th. The perfectionist of retro Soul and the Hip Hop grandmaster come together to bring a refreshingly cool funkiness. The player below includes all three songs, the uptempo Do It, the throwback synthastic So Good and the ultra smooth Get U Home.
