Tuxedo (Jake One & Mayer Hawthorne) Inject The Boogie Into Paul McCartney's "Wonderful Christmastime"
The fellas of Tuxedo (AKA Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One) are giving you something to two-step with for the holidays, dropping their boogified take on Paul McCartney‘s classic “Wonderful Christmastime” just in time for the eggnog to start flowing. The bright and upbeat OG cut gets a much needed update with back crisp claps that cut, weeping G-funked-out synth lines and just generally a more straightforward groove for you fireside merriments come next week. Thought it serves as a proper dose of holiday fawnkin’, it will not be featured on the duos forthcoming full-length debut, slated to arrive on March 3rd, 2015 via Stones Throw Records. The cover comes as a fine follow-up to the lighthearted and hilarious clip for “Do It” and their stud three track EP, which is still in rotation these days. You can download and/or stream Tuxedo’s upgraded spin on Sir Paul’s “Wonderful Christmastime” below. Keep it locked for all the sophistifunk these two have on the way and jump back if you need to get acquainted with the fellas. Preorder their vinyl at Stones Throw and the digital on iTunes today.
