Just in time for summer, conscious hip hop artist SOULEYE drops a new single from his forthcoming studio album WILDMAN.
Los Angeles, CA, May 04, 2017 — Just in time for summer, conscious hip hop artist SOULEYE drops a new single from his forthcoming studio album WILDMAN. “HIP HOP MEDICINE” is the kind of infectious, upbeat dance hit that makes summer fun. For this track, producers JESSE MOLLOY and DAVE VEITH, better known as the duo Crush Effect, recruited a familiar voice.
Pop singer DUSTIN TAVELLA provides a soulful yet upbeat lyric quality to the song, which he describes as a song with a “throwback feel,” recalling summer dance hits like those beachhouse hits from MTV’s glory days. Dustin credits Jesse and Dave with his participation.
“Jesse Molloy had approached me about getting on the track with SOULEYE,” Dustin reveals. “I love everything that Jesse and Crush Effect produce so it didn’t surprise me when I head the record and how infectious it is.”
“Hip Hop Medicine” is featured as a bonus track on WILDMAN, which drops on streaming and online June 27. With its fun beats, clever hook and sing-along lyrics, “Hip Hop Medicine” is a single with the makings of the breakout hit of 2017.
Even with the popular focus and catchy hook, Souleye’s conscious style still shines through, while his effortless lyrics showcase his deep roots as a master freestyler. Much of the new album was written during a three-day period, in a makeshift studio off the Vancouver coast. The almost freestyled lyrics, backing tracks and vocals represent the height of genre-bending artistry of a Souleye song, something Dustin loved to be a part of.
“As an artist, it’s always fun to collaborate and be a part of something with someone who is also so passionate about creating,” Dustin says. “It’s obvious that Souleye loves his craft, and that just makes me appreciate these kinds of projects ever more.”
