Tuxedo // July

The best news in this overflowing river of bad news is that Tuxedo are back in business! Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One have dropped a short and sweet EP of their signature boogie bangers. We love the title track ‘Fux With The Tux’ (obviously) but at the same time we can’t resist a good old slow jam. So here is the hot ‘July’. Check out the whole EP.

Mullally // Wonderful

Bubbling to the top of my most played tracks in recent weeks is this new track from Mullally. ‘Wonderful’ brilliantly kicks off with a contemporary shuffle groove that drags you into a big chorus and spits you out for a jazz nerd modulating key change. It’s modern production mixed with classic soulful songwriting. Big fan. And the Internet tells me Mullally is originally from Norfolk. It’s not often you read that.

Quite a ‘zesty neo-soul’ statement from Mullally. Looking forward to listening to what comes next.

Aura // Let Go It’s Over

Another excellent re-issue from Hawaiian old-soul purveyors Aloha Got Soul. A collaboration between GC favourite Mike Lundy, Lemur and Aura this sounds like an LP I need to own. Any soul & funk group is only as good as it’s ballads and here Aura do not disappoint. ‘Let Go It’s Over’ is silky smooth with a bottom end to match those smooth vocals.

The whole LP is coming soon.
