Remember the golden era of hip-hop when songs were were jazz heavy samples from artists Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers and others. Well a group out of Camden, London OthaSoul, arguably the smoothest-sounding British hip hop collective we’ve heard in recent memory is bringing the sound back. Comprised of MCs Dozer Carter and Jungle VIP, alongside producer DMobbs has shared a new new single “The Sickness.” Their sound is reminiscent of Guru’s Jazzmatazz. OthaSoul new song is jazz heavy sampled that takes you on a musical journey with dope lyrics. Hip-hop has always been international, so I challenge the listeners to be open minded.
Take a listen.
