Cali duo Tyson onBEATS let rip on their latest cool-out jawn “We So Fly” off 2013’s Purpose LP. The tandem is comprised of malleable MC Tyson Amir and the production wizardry of Ridwan Bass (AKA onBEATS.) These forward-minded backpack revivalists bring forth a refreshing take on the boom-bap steez, stunting some murky bossa-styled rhodes chords at its foundation, cascading flute licks and a tight, cracking snare-kick combo to keep that cave-deep pocket alive and well. And let’s not forget Mikial tying the whole damn thing together on the hook with that half rap, half croon vocal treatment.
It’s the perfect sonic accompaniment to your summertime follies, beachside retreats or just a night at the crib with the homies and a few blessings in the air. The Purpose LP is available via Bandcamp today, so be sure to cop that if you have yet to do so. Get your passports ready fam, these Blessed Coast cats are looking to hit the friendly sky in a big way. Check back for some new sunny funk from the ill duo in the weeks and months to come. Until then, peep the blissful set of visuals for Tyson onBEATS’ latest single “We So Fly” below.
