Daru Jones + Kissey Asplund 'So Good' EP
If you know me, then you know my unyielding and longtime Urkel like crush for Kissey Asplund. And not only because she's fine as May wine in the summertime (lame I know) but her talent is undeniable. Her unique voice and style is unlike anything I've heard before, and the way she flows effortlessly on the most unconventional of tracks is amazing. This time she linked up with equally talented producer Daru Jones, lending her voice to uptempo hip-hop influenced beats, and the combination definitely works. Daru's soulful hip-hop beats and Kissey's soft spoken singing style blend together seamlessly. I especially like the Mobb Deep flip on 'Sweetest Day,' the sample of 'Temperatures Rising' is dope, and Kissey's voice makes you instantly groove along to the music. This collaboration could turn out to be quite fruitful, I can't wait to hear more from the unofficial duo. You can download the project for the free from Daru's BandCamp. Leave us a Love Note and let us know what you think and better yet. Drop Daru and Kissey a line directly on the Twitter and tell them yourself.
