First time around, miss Maiya Norton blew us away with her selection on our first exclusive release from the Sonic Boom series. While many better known names peppered the the first compilation, on Sonic Boom Vol. 2, Maiya shows us that her musical fluency goes deep and digs up some hidden gems.
Of the artists that folks may be familiar with, Suzi Analogue offers a melodic, lulling instrumental aptly named “TheEndOfTheNite” and our homies The Stuyvesants share another vintage soul epic called “Machine Love.” Other standouts for us are Bay Area electro-soul troupe The Seshen, rapper Eccentric, and Milwaukee producer Haz Solo.
Really, the whole thing plays out beautifully, never quite staying the same in style or tempo yet tying together into a tasteful journey of modern soul, electronic, hip-hop, and dance music.
