We try to keep up on all of the great releases that have dropped so far in 2018 and keep them in rotation in our play boxes but from time to time we slip up and forget to hip you on what you should be checking for. One of those releases which hopefully you’re already in the know on but if not then now you are comes from one of the illest duo’s in the Hip Hop / Soul realm residing in the UK, Children of Zeus. Their latest 7″ release “Slow Down” b/w ” All Night” is one part late night Summer cool out, second part hot times, fun in the city anthem that really takes me back to the 90’s era when things we lovely.
“Slow Down A deceptively soulful slow jam that lulls you into a false sense of filtered smoothness, before a floor-shaking beat & trill hats drop in from above, as if thrown in via a thunderbolt from Zeus himself.
And on the flip, an uptempo boom-bap steppa, ‘All Night’. Konny sets this one off on some straight b-boy isht, riding a rhythm that’s guaranteed to make grown Hip Hoppers reminisce, before Tyler’s sweet swing-tinged vocals glide into play to keep you firmly steppin’ – this one again illustrating the Mancunian duo’s craft of creating timeless Hip Hop Soul music.”
Already sold out on their duo’s bandcamp page but readily available at retailers and secondary markets.
