Sitting here listening to the The Mission EP, trying to contain my excitement. In part for anything Guilty Simpson related, and more importantly, it marks Eric Lau's return to what I felt was a strength in hip hop production. The Mission EP features 8 tight tracks, with the second buzz single from the highly anticipated EP getting leaked just 2 days ago.
Yesterday features Guilty Simpson, Eglo's Queen Fatima & Olivier Daysoul. The rough and real raps of Detroit's baritone badman Guilty Simpson are soulfully balanced by a Eric Lau's smooth silvery piano sample, and the harmonies of Fatima of ODS on chorus duties. 48hrs, 4200 plays and 40 some comments at the time of writing, and the ppl have spoken: dope. This was the sum of the parts as they were added and the solution was just has fresh.
The Mission EP by Eric Lau will be out Feb 3rd, and can be pre-ordered on the Kilawatt Music site.
