Fresh Colorado hip-hop from Hustle Man, Whygee, Drop Switch and Fly4Wird
Drop Switch - "One Time"
Drop Switch continues to impress with its increasingly distinct blend of hip-hop, funk and neo-soul. "One Time" combines Emma Wallingford's infectious voice with the peppy lyrics of MC Logistixx. As usual, the band provides a musical foundation in which the two vocalists can operate, but more than that, the musicians pay close attention to the idiosyncrasies of the vocalists and each other for an absolutely together and well-balanced composition.
Babah Fly, Mike Wird & Fast4Ward - "UNcontained"
There's something very endearing about Babah Fly's totally unique, almost mousey voice -- something disarming, but very stylish at the same time; it works beautifully with DJ Fast4Ward's bouncy, off-kilter beat, and it contrasts well with Wird's deeper, more assertive voice. This is a chemistry that bodes well for the trio's upcoming EP, Fly4Wird. Anchored by Abigail Freed's soft, if slightly detached, lyrics, "UNcontained" will put you in a trance for as long as the music is playing.
