Haven’t heard a lot from Chicago based Towkio until this song dropped back in April 2015. This song is another example why we love Chance The Rapper cause he’s somehow one of the “realest mc’s” out there atm. This collabo harmonises pretty well including singer Eryn Allen Kane. Produced by Lido. Heaven knows the rest…
that’s what i woke up to – and probably fall asleep with. i love it[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Alma-Take-It-To-Go-ft.-Rico.mp3|titles=Alma – Take It To Go ft. Rico]

Alma – Homecoming
Chosen by Complex Mag (anybody still reading that?) as one of the Top Twenty Bands to look out for and praised by fans and critics alike for creating an own genre or at least the first good jazz/funk/hip hop band in ages – this 7 piece band from Chicago released a 7 piece EP last year, that went by mostly unnoticed. Out of several k’s of possible facebook connections with my accounts only 2 people i know liked them, hmmm? They definitely deserve better.
>>> Hug them here >>> Get them here >>> ps my fave track of the Ep is a track called “Summerscent” (of course that was my choice) which is somehow very reminiscent of the early hip hop / acid jazz collabos of the early 90ies in NY and London and it reminds me of a certain sound Pharcyde were known for, before music history tied them down to 3 of their hits. Feel good and proper music by this fresh new band.[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Kids-these-days-Darling.mp3]
Kids These Days – Summerscent
Nice slow-motion reggae/dub goody by Wild Belle (siblings Natalie & Eliot Bergman) from Chicaco. Hope you enjoy the song and support them by ordering the 12″ Vinyl on bandcamp as it drops these days.
