Worldwide Premiere // Do£ Boy // Smoke Drink and F22k
September 24, 2015
South London’s 22a, are a tight-knit collective who have fast established themselves in the capital for their funk-lased, head-nodding music. Previous releases have come via Tenderlonious, Mo Kolours, Jeen Bassa, Al Dobson Jr, Reginald Omas Mamode IV and Henry Wu and for their seventh release, they welcome two new members to the fold.
Sharing a split release EP is South London lyricist Do£ Boy and vocalist Shepherd, who are accompanied by the rest of the 22a family on production. Today’s GPWW premiere comes from Do£ Boy, who skips along a beat from Reginald Omas Mamode IV with tales of inner city London life.
22a007 is released on 2nd October – pre-order now from the label’s Bandcamp. Listen to a track on the b-side from Shepherd, courtesy of Stamp The Wax and catch the first 22a monthly residency at Stour Space on 10th October.
