Remember the 90s? Of course you do. Besides bringing us that ol’ boom bap, the decade also brought us the sometimes groovy, sometimes dubious genre of spacey, drowsy, “trip hop.” (I think within ego trip we might be split on this, but none of us are fronting on Massive Attack, trust ). Still at a time when rap and it’s audience wholesale embraces the empty treble-funk of europop, it’s almost refreshing to take a faux trip down memory lane and imagine a hypothetical Heavy Rhyme Experience as conducted by Morcheeba. (Yeah, I said it. What?!) Recorded during the sessions for their upcoming Living In Patterns LP, this non-album track by LA band Pollyn enlists the smooth vocal stylings of forever gutta Roc Marciano, for a soundtrack made for those friday nights when you’re lampin’ wit’ the lady, sippin’ chenin blanc in the kitchen and hooking up a sexy meal of linguini with clam sauce. You’re a grown man now, kikko. We think she’ll dig you for it.
