Telephoned - Off The Hook Mixtape
I downloaded this mixtape today and I was so impressed that no matter that it's not my usual type of music, I had to share the wealth. Telephoned is a duo signed to A-Trak's record label Fool's Gold, and is comprised of producer/DJ Sammy Bananas and Maggie Horn. Their music samples hip-hop beats but also has elements of electronic music and plenty of pop influences as well. Although most of the tracks are based on covers, they're very original and atypical. To be honest, even if they were straight copies, Horn's voice is so soothing that this would be worth the download anyways. For the best listen, this mixtape should be enjoyed as it is - aka from beginning to end straight.
Telephoned's debut album drops this coming Tuesday, but until then head over to RCRD LBL and grab this gem for free while it lasts.
