Shafiq Husayn of the mighty future funk trio SA-RA lets loose a spacey new single with the arrival of “Picking Flowers,” featuring Elsadiq off Delicious Vinyl‘s recently released DVTV Compilation Vol. 2. With the rumor mills flooded by whispers of the next move from the West Coast funk disciples, “Picking Flowers” strolls in perfectly timed, care-free and wholly Dilla-fied. The shuffling swing, the cavernous synth treatments, that righteous low-end; all earmarks off the homie Shafiq. Now if we could just get word on the follow-up to SA-RA’s Nuclear Evolution: The Age Of Love, my summer would be complete.
The DVTV Compilation Vol. 2 is out now and can be streamed on Soundcloud or purchased via iTunes today, featuring hand-picked cuts from Rhettmatic and Frank Nitt ( AKA The Joint Chiefs), Budamonk, Freddie Joachim and more. We’ll certainly be bringing y’all the word on SA-RA’s latest offerings when it (or they) arrive, just be sure to keep it locked to the realm. You can stream Shafiq Husayn and Elsadiq’s “Picking Flowers” below for a quick fix of funk to get your Monday started on the good foot.
