With a music video and an EP drop, RandomWork, released early this year, A Billion Young are producing tracks any Chicago music head can appreciate. Combining melo beats, choppy vocals, and array of jazz and juke influences, these guys are waking up even the toughest of critics. With notable talent and quality taste, the duo is putting freshness back into the scene raided with heavy breathing mogs over eBay microphones, iTune Playlist DJs, and overly recycled A$AP Mob beats. Something I’m sure all of us can appreciate.
While all six tracks on their RandomWork EP displayed their signature crisp sound, my favorite off the list was “Shonuff” featuring Tokyo Shawn and “Louie“. Something about the girl’s vocals in “Shonuff” made me feel like Spring was approaching and well, like Chicago was done dicking around with all this damn snow.
Two tracks not featured are “Swisher Sweet” and “Lean” which became my personal favorite during my stay in Mexico. Nothing more fitting than bumping these tracks while I downed 40’s with my girls and burned under the sun, essentially becoming the Red Octobers.
