Jay Electronica and Tone Treasure-Jazzmatazz (Guru Tribute)


Dropped earlier on Twitter by Mr. Electronica, I actually saw the Tweet and thought he was just promoting another artist called Jazzmatazz. Turned out to be one of my stupidest assumptions to date, as the track is in fact his own tribute to the memory of Guru.

The production borrows the DJ Premier-produced intro for Group Home’s 1995 debut album Livin’ Proof, and loops the soulful vibe to great effect, allowing for extended enjoyment of the original’s smooth vibes. Jay comes through with some memorable lyricism as ever in his two verses, accompanied by a slightly slower flow that meshes nicely with the beat. Great vocals from Tone in her brief additions, as she works with the soulful style of the beat nicely.
