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.

New Track: Eric Lau & Guilty Simpson – “The Mission”

Missing Eric Lau after watching his video interview in September, aren’t you? We know you are. That’s why we convinced him to record a new track with Guilty Simpson (we didn’t really) just to share with you. How awesome are we?!

The track is called “The Mission” and is definitely an interesting direction for the producer. The sound is still sparkling and soulful, yet this time with a bit more grit than your standard Lau tune. The gully Guilty rides the mellow beat quite well himself. Definitely appreciate both these artists stretching themselves and trying something new.

Look out for their debut album also featuring MF Doom, Elzhi, and Guilty Simpson, to release later this year!
