The Hop - The Hop EP

The Hop – The Hop EP

The Hop is a recently formed French collective, their debut EP a lustrous fusion of jazz, hip hop and soul music. There are hints of ?uestlove  in the tight percussion style throughout, and the seven tracks are peppered with sounds, from the Ahmad Jamal-esque keys on Dreamland to classic talkbox effects on Le Rap Me Porte.

fans of the genres will hear callings to a huge range of influences on the EP

In fact, fans of the genres will hear callings to a huge range of influences on the EP, recreations of horns in the style that Pete Rock would love to sample on Rien Ne M’Arrêtera, smatterings of Dilla and D’angelo in the Intro and plenty more. A 12 piece with real talent, here, pulling off live recording with the thickness of sampled soul… The EP is available for purchase next week – stream below until then!

    A good night, 5am, tired friends surrounding you and smiling. Time to remember. This is the Perfect EP to slap on and just smoke on top of a roof and absorb all that happened in the past 8hrs. Sometimes all you need is a wonderful piece of music to make it all better.

    This will be on loop.
