Belgian producer dj Chillow teams up with his longtime pal Jeffrey Jefferson on the second in his ‘n Chillow series. Jefferson aka Gringo already featured on the first album Reap ‘n Chillow- NY2BE . Jefferson ‘n Chillow – Muddy Grounds is the second album on which Chillow collaborates with fellow artists. Jefferson has a Rap background, but with his band SoulRock Avenue he ventures into singing Neo Soul. This is exactly what the new project is about, creating a mature Hawthorne-like sound. You can preview the first single Muddy Grounds here.
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.
