It’s been nearly one year since producer Adrian Younge announced he was collaborating with legendary West Coast outfit Souls of Mischief on a new album, There Is Only Now. The project described as “’93 Til Infinity meets The Low End Theory meets De La Soul is Dead” was supposed to drop last fall but it was clearly pushed back quite a bit, as we’re only just now hearing the first single. “There Is Only Now” is a truly collaborative effort, particularly on the rapping tip as one MC’s bars roll into the next. It makes for a song that’s easy to love, especially if you’re partial to the tag-team approach, and features a smooth Snoop Dogg guest verse to boot. Dude sounds great over Younge’s soulful, simple audio backdrop.
