Yours Truly's "Songs From Scratch" series has resulted in some pretty amazing collaborations, with results like Danny Brown and AraabMuzik's "Molly Ringwald" or Angel Haze and Lunice's "Gimme That". This round of the series delivers some sexy production and soulful singing from Los Angeles' Shlohmo and Chicago's Jeremih. The two come together and created "Bo Peep (Do U Right)", a pulsating R&B cut with grimy production and emotional croons echoing throughout. It's dirty, but it's oh so good. Stream the song, along with a making-of video, below.
One of our favorite remixers, Darren Williams aka Star Slinger has just debuted his first official single "Dumbin'" on Green Label Sound. The single features Reggie B, whom Wiliams had in mind while he was producing the song.
Star Slinger will be hitting the road in North America with Shlohmo and SKOA favorite Mux Mool. Have a look at dates after you've grabbed "Dumbin'" for yourself below:
