Having worked with the likes of Rexx Life Raj, Caleborate, and Elujay, JULiA LEWiS continues to refine his skills with each release. The Bay Area producer returns to W&V today with an all-star collab titled “On The Regular.” Featuring talent from Elujay, Mr. Carmack, and Mikos Da Gawd, his latest offering is the perfect soundtrack for driving around town with the homies. Elujay’s smooth delivery pairs nicely with the bouncy foundation from JULiA Lewis, Carmack, and Mikos, merging their individual talents to create one of my favorite songs this year.
Vibe out the “On The Regular” below.
The first time I heard about Adam Vida, the San Francisco-bred emcee was spilling verses from the passenger seat in a TeamBackPack cypher under his former moniker, A-1. Needless to say, I was heavily impressed by his combo of intricate wordplay and rhyme patterns, both channeled by his buttery flow.
Aside from a few singles, Adam has kept fairly quiet in terms of releases following his Thurlian project, but returns today with the first taste of his forthcoming 2017 EP. “I’m Juiced” features production from one of his close collaborators, Mr. Carmack, for an upbeat track that’s oozing with confidence. Adam’s honed skills on the mic shine throughout, topped with Carmack’s echoing plucks and bouncy groove.
Throw on “I’m Juiced” (with your elbows up) below.
During their Asia tour earlier this year, close collaborators Mr. Carmack and Jarreau Vandal of Soulection covered Rihanna‘s “James Joint.” The duo joins forces to deliver a soulful rendition of the ANTI cut. With smooth piano melodies and crisp production, their silky collab also marks the first time Jarreau’s own vocals have been featured on a track.
