The Mayor and I got really excited about the New Jack Swing aesthetic of that new Bruno Mars & Cardi B song, so we had a little YouTube party about it. When I went home, my head was stuck in the 90s. I’m also reading the 33⅓ book about Dummy and how Portishead worked behind the scenes, so somewhere between those two nodes, my subconscious triangulated this part funky, part moody 90s house party tape.

For the past… god, eighteen weeks? I don’t know anymore! …DangerGrove (me on vocals and Eli Grove on beats) has been taking part in a series of challenges, testing ourselves against other duos. We did a song with a guest on the hook, an adaptation of an existing song, a tribute to a specific fandom, our best attempt at a hit single and radio jingle, and now we’re in the final round.
I’ve heard some tapes, and some tapes have heard me.
