With their latest single, â€œCutlass Supreme,â€ the soulful, DMV-based duo of Kev Brown and J-Scienide continue to seamlessly combine insightful rhymes, sample-driven breaks, and jazzy grooves.
â€œTaking a moment to look back on life and taking inventory on certain thingsâ€ is how Brown approached the track both lyrically and production-wise. Scienide feels his direction for the second single from their forthcoming Stray From the Pack LP reflects â€œhow sometimes life has more downs than ups.â€ Continuing to note how their contribution impacts the trackâ€™s title, he continues, â€œgotta grab those keys and navigate that Cutlass!â€
With funky cuts supplied by DJ Jon Doe, â€œCutlass Supremeâ€ falls on the heels of the albumâ€™s debut leak, â€œOut the Safari,â€™ which features a similar vibe driven by Scienideâ€™s head-nodding production. Hearing the two well-respected talents dig with depth and scope into their vaunted craftsmanship again yields dividends. This full-length LP follows 2019â€™s Drum Machine Tape Cassette, the duoâ€™s first collaborative offering.
â€œCutlass Supremeâ€ is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms and can be downloaded for â€˜instant gratâ€™ off the pre-order for Stray From the Pack. The 12 track LP is due out Jan. 08 digitally through their Static King imprint via Fat Beats Records and on vinyl in limited quantities by way of De Rap Winkel Records.
