Sorry guys we’ve been kind of on a journey of self-discovery over the last few days… not really, but we did take a little break. Let’s start off Sunday right with a little early afternoon belated push of one of DC’s (Alexandria, specifically) premier producers Soulful! His newest release, Mambo Sauce and Drumbreaks, off of InnerLoop Records is a really tightly cut, locally-brewed instrumental album featuring some of the area’s best and brightest, including K-Beta, IhsAn Bilal, XO and others. So soulful.
We really dig this record. Mellow Life was already an instant hit, and this innately DC-inspired amalgam takes those killer hooks and basslines to the next level. Once again, Soulful’s mastery of drumbreaks and local colloboration really launch this album into the stratosphere. While not as a sample heavy as Mellow Life, Mambo Sauce really shows a progression in sound, and we guarantee you’ll be bumping this album just in time for spring and summer.
