It's always a delight to hear anything from London songstress Rahel. Produced by Eric Lau, the woozy "Guide You" tune creates a fantasy world somewhat akin to that created on Janelle Monae's ArchAndroid album. We love it!
The track will be on Eric Lau's upcoming album, One of Many, out June 17.
Unfair is this preview for this new Eric Lau and Oddisee track, "What I'd Rather." About twelve seconds in, we already knew that we needed to have it all. The mellow tune eases you in with its muffled piano and Oddisee's effortless flow that caresses and slaps you in the breath - how rude/awesome.
"What I'd Rather" will be available on April 21!
The Mission EP includes seven tracks with the overarching theme including Detroit rapper Guilty Simpson on the majority of the tracks. Simpson is sounding pretty incredible against these Lau beats. Folks are going to need to get to work to try to compare to these joints. Loving this!

Looks like the Eric Lau and Guilty Simpson collaboration ("The Mission") back in November wasn't a one time thing. Their newest tune, "Yesterday," is a characteristically chilled out track with droopy keys and features some pretty pretty background vocals from Fatima and Olivier Daysoul. Feel free to let your hair down for this one.
