Straight fire coming from Sunset Cities, a new collaborative group formed over a plate of Ethiopian food in Adelaide early last year between So.Crates (Cazeaux O.S.L.O. & Skomes), Nelson Dialect, and Alnitak Kid.
“Oh Baby!” Call it out when you are high on love. “Oh Baby!” Cry it out when that same love gets you low. Over the soulful, trunk rattling production of Melbourne beat-maker Skomes, rapper/poets Nelson Dialect and Cazeaux O.S.L.O. weigh in on their perspective of love and loss. This track highlights the lyrical heavyweights mastery of their individual cadence and sound and simultaneously solidifies their union on record as a supergroup comfortable with the allure of boom bap basics and the challenge of great story telling. The one and only Jace XL (Hiatus Kaiyote) brings it home with a single question. “Do you love now love?” In the age of all things aimed toward instant gratification, “Oh Baby!” is both a love and anti-love anthem sent from the heart by two blues men of the new century.
