Keeping it real and in the spirit of golden age hip hop, Origu Records gives us a banger of a rap forty five in “Psychedelic Sally” featuring Daddy-O of Stetsasonic fame. Originally from 1993 and then shelved, Origu get this one to see the light of day and on seven no less! The jazz side of this seven sounds just as crisp as it did in ’93, with dope production, uptempo beats for the b-boys, and the classic Daddy-O flow. Tough as nails stuff right here. The flip, the soul, side, is Daddy-O and R.A. The Rugged Man with “Stress”. This is much smoother, but with Daddy-O and R.A. trading rhymes over a completely soulful beat, murking it like it was the late ’90’s. While we dig both sides, it’s “Stress” that really grabs us. Perhaps it is the vibes that keep our heads nodding (think Pete Rock and CL Smooth’s “T.R.O.Y” remix feel), but this nostalgic feeling of both of these tracks will make it appealing to hip hop heads and music champions alike. We are definitely pleased in the way that Origu has been getting hip hop royalty on a seven with great results. This double side of heat is further proof that they are not playing. Check out a snippet of both sides below (jazz/ soul, nice touch!) and order the 45 after the stream. Hip hop is in the building, what!
