Philly local producersDilemma, JoeLogic and Gee have teamed up with singer/songwriter Modesty Lycan on a new collab, Reverie Drive. Their debut self titled EP blends the sounds of electro, indie rock, pop and hip hop – making it apparent that each member and their unique background had an equal influence on the final product.[/caption]
We’re big enthusiasts of A Tribe Called Quest here at The Key, so as you can imagine, we’re all kinds of geeking out over Chill Moody‘s latest single, “A Tribe Called Nice Things.” Premiered earlier today on hip-hop blog Ashley Outrageous, the song grabs an opening loop from “Scenario,” the middle section pulls from “Can I Kick It” (which, in its own brilliant way, pulled from Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side”) then we’re into a bit of “Award Tour,” closing out on “Electric Relaxation.” There might even be more that I’m not hearing off the top – producer JoeLogic has a lot going on, in the best way – the track is rich, awesome and enjoyable. If you’re hearing Tribe samples that we’re not, let us know in the comments – and catch Chill Moody in concert when he opens for Childish Gambino at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing next Tuesday, Aug. 7.
