New Music: Jason James & Rodney Hazard – Go
by Yvette Travillian
For me to come across a hip hop song in 2010 that samples one of my favorite electronica songs from 1999 is the ultimate surprise. From the dope duo that is Jason James and Rodney Hazard comes their newest track “Go” from their soon to be released album Marvelous World of Color.
Not familiar with Jason and Rodney? Well neither am I and trying to find some solid info on the two is somewhat of an exhausting task but I do know that “Go” is an awesome blend of hip hop, dosed with just the right amount of chilled-synth ambiance – and the fact that it is laced with a hot sample of “Fall Into You” from SF electronic group Soulstice, makes it a total win in my headphones.
I almost expected them to throw in the awesome vocals of Gina Renee but to my disapointment they didn’t (maybe on the remix?). Peep “Go” below and in case it has you feeling a little nostalgic, I also included Soulstice’s version as well.
