MP3: Pseudo Slang - "Walkin' (feat.) Grap Luva" 06.01.2009
"This be that fly jazz sh!t so open your mind to it / Embrace the bass and come and relate the crime to it"
Pseudo Slang's new track "Walkin'" feat. Grap Luva is placed right in the middle of their new album We'll Keep Looking for a reason: they want it to be one of the cornerstones of the project. The Buffalo-based duo of Emcee Sick and producer Tone Atlas use this track to give praise to the jazz-tinged side of their many influences. The lyrics are a mission statement - citing their favorite jazz aesthetics (which, conveniently, Atlas uses in synch) while laying down the reasons they were meant to be "reinstatin', invigoratin', integratin', DJ fadin'" music via their brand of hip-hop. They utilize a jazz standard walking bass line from samples and bump it to a simmering shuffle drumbeat. Top this off with the occasional piano trill, horn lick, or guitar riff and suddenly you are "walkin' back to ill tracks."
Pseudo Slang is a hip-hop duo from the Buffalo, NY music scene. Emcee Sick of the Xtracts of Slang and Tone Atlas of the Pseudo Intellectuals teamed up about a decade ago to form Pseudo Slang - a side project that took on a career of its own. After their debut release, The Catalogue (a compilation of tracks PS laid down from 1999 to 2004), Pseudo Slang switched to full time. After being quickly signed to stalwart hip-hop label Fat Beats Records, Pseudo Slang released the single "Broke and Copasetic" in 2006. National and international tours followed, and the build towards their first complete studio release as a duo is almost at its apex: We'll Keep Looking drops June 16th via Fat Beats Records.
