Laid back yet in control is that feeling you get with that first listen. Think smooth jazz club with invited special friends on the stage for an impromptu jam while you’re sipping a Remy Martin and puffing on a Davidoff.
Add to that the suave dose of reality you get with the video for ‘Reality’ and you have an interesting take on the trials and tribulations of basic life in this world. What more could you ask for?
The album ‘Duality’, which includes ‘Reality’, drops April 1st.
For Reality, the Jazz Hip Hop combo teamed up with Japanese Jazz sensation Takuya Kuroda and Detroit rapper Black Milk for this gem. The track sits perfectly in between Jazz and Hip Hop, combining the best of both worlds.
Smooth trumpet licks, and a virtuoso solo on a buttery warm production meet clever, introspective lyrics. The song is mainly about the perception of reality and how it is effected by privilege, origin and peers.
A must-listen for Hip Hop and Jazz fans.
‘Reality’ is the second single to drop ahead of their studio album ‘Duality’, which is out Friday 1st April.
‘Duality’ is an equal measure of rap and jazz, containing electronically produced beats and live instrumentation. Lyrically reflective yet totally unreserved, with some incredible features including Detroit rapper Black Milk, Japanese jazz trumpeter and Blue Note artist Takuya Kuroda, New Zealand soul singer Noah Slee, and South African singer Hunter Rose.
