SMOKEY JOE & THE KID

Hip Hop Groove

France

BIO

Smokey Joe & The Kid is the association of two beatmakers from Bordeaux who are as passionate about US hip hop and bass music as they are about the groove of early 20th century melodies. Percussion solos played with scratch, beats and melodies interpreted with the MPC: everything is played live. A resolutely hip-hop bias on samples always inspired by the repertoire of traditional American music.

60 million streams after their 2nd opus Running To The Moon, the 3rd album of the duo, War Is Over, is a dive in the funk and the soul 70’s with always the same will to draw the essential from it: the beauty of the melodies and the implacable groove. The HipHop instrumentals on which singers and MCs seem to have more fun than ever, serve as a link to the whole.

Recorded mainly in Bordeaux, this new opus marks a turning point in the production method of the group. The brass section present on the Running To The Moon tour was involved in the composition and thus brings a more organic touch to the sound of the album.

As usual, the duo has surrounded itself with a horde of cult singers and MCs: R.A The Rugged Man, Pavan & Illaman, Yoshi Di Original, Blake Worrell, Mysdiggi or the young hopeful Yudimah (Fair 2020 Winner) and the English C.W Jones.

War is Over sounds like a declaration of love to black American music, from Early Jazz to Hip Hop, through Soul and Funk.
