There is a burgeoning new trend to have a great artist perform on your track. But very few and far between do they link and knock it out the park! As soon as the track booms on the house record “Selecta”, THE IZM. (Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus a Spike Lee Production) in a stacatto cadence sings “I don’t do the club thang but I make the club bang” and as soon as the beat drops “honey you don’t stand a chance get lose”! The producer UnUsual brings the distinctive Jersey house music sound! While satiating my musical palate giving me futuristic high hats, reverb, and soul claps, nails it! If you close your eyes you can imagine hitting the highway with your girls jammin! “I’ll house you!” I can see the old heads now making a line dance to this record already! As I’ve mentioned, individually they’re amazing, but together they’re Dark Alley Echoes!
Instintively, I want to take it back to my house roots at Skate 22 (SHOUT OUT TO JERSEY). Bringing The IZM.’s intricate rhyme to UnUsual’s sonic landscape, their sound is as organic as it is enticing. “Selecta” blends the worlds of soul, hip-hop, jazz and house into an escape like none other. Their forthcoming EP will definitely be something to behold and, nonetheless, unforgettable.
This is most definitely going on my play list! Tell me in the comments if you liked!
