Some nice soulful hip hop from Othello & DJ Vajra. I’ve been finding it extremely hard to find any hip hop that’s a real ‘keeper’ over the last few years. Then magically, this afternoon Stephanie from A-Side emailed this over. Have a listen below, you’ll be pleased!!! Active Balanced (ready for download on iTunes) also features our guy-of-the-moment Mayer Hawthorne on the hook.
Emcee Othello (Lightheaded Crew) connects with turntablist DJ Vajra for this 12″ which showcases Mayer Hawthorne aka Haircut and his group Now On (Jackson Perry, IX Lives, Haircut). This is the first single off the upcoming album ‘The Required Taste.’
On the flip-side, Theory Hazit makes an appearance with “Same Team Suckas.” Instrumentals and accapellas available for both tracks!
Artist: Othello & DJ Vajra
