Tuxedo is a collaboration between Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One. Their latest EP ‘Fux With The Tux’ is firmly rooted in the great funk and soul sounds of the seventies. For a pastiche it’s incredibly vivifying to hear them channel the spirit of classic funk into recordings which are at the forefront of modern production. The whole EP is a mini masterpiece so I suggest you start with the opener/title track and dive in.
