Camp Lo & A 10-Piece Horn Section Sound Rich Like Luchini (Audio)
After more than 20 years of making music, Camp Lo is nothing if not experimental. The team of Sonny Cheeba and Geechie Suede are gifted in their ability blend retro style (and slang) with futuristic thinking. Even after two handfuls of albums and several side projects, the Uptown Saturday Night players are still able to veer to new terrains.
“Don’t Ask Y” is Camp Lo’s new song with the Urban Renewal Project. The 13-piece band includes 10 horn musicians, yielding a sound quite different from the lush sampling of Ski Beatz or Pete Rock. The live sound comes across, even in the recording, as Suede and Sonny make a home in the pocket. They’re still rapping about fashion, originality, and encouraging listeners to walk tall, or don’t walk at all.
This belongs to upcoming Urban Renewal Project 21st Century Ghost.
