I apologize for the delay between posts, my bad, but let’s get to the music! Petijee on the Humble Grooves imprint just dropped a new full-length album Soul Paper Scissors, and it is dope! The Slovakian beatmaker layers and arranges some dope jazz samples over some great piano. One of the guest features includes the soul man Miles Bonny, and that track is fire! Go get this album!
Miles Bonny is back! The classic jazzy soul is oozing out from his newest single Way. He links up with the Australian singer Shhor, and they create a real gem. Both their voices are on point and matches perfectly with Miles Bonny’s Flugelhorn. If this is a sign for more things to come from Mr. Bonny, 2016 is going to be a fantastic year. Check it out!
The New Mexico emcee Wake Self just dropped a new single I Still Love Her which takes you on a ride through the Golden Era of Hiphop. The video is super creative, recreating all these classic hiphop albums. The song features Ma Dukes, Miles Bonny provided the horns and Young Native producing the track. It is dope, go check it out!
If you have been following my blog for a while, it is probably apparent I have an affinity for Jazzy hip hop. For me, it is the perfect balance between the free open style of jazz and the more structured Hiphop beat. Well Kayo, the French beat maker, has caught my ear with his new release A Thousand Months. On the album, Kayo has collaborated with a few big names such as Awon, The 49ers, and one my favourites Miles Bonny. The track with Mr. Bonny is the standout track, it has it all the jazz elements, the tight percussion and the soulful vocals. Go grab this album!
