I can’t believe I let this one fall through the cracks as it far as it has. A week ago, already-established hip-hop artists Theophilus London & Jesse Boykin III joined forces to form the group Paris 96. This first single Afternoon got production from the one and only Xaphoon Jones and you should be keeping an eye out for an EP coming sometime this April. I could listen to this all day; the production has SOO many layers from wailing organs and vocal samples to ambient blips that create a really open soundscape and the last 30 seconds is just awesome. We’ll most definitely keep you updated on all their latest efforts so grab the free download and enjoy!
