A gritty, genuinely soulful debut from the team of Miles Bonny and beatmaker Brenk Sinatra
– and one of the best underground soul-skewing full lengths yet from Mr. Bonny and Melting Pot! With the exception of some guitar, S3 is a 2-man operation – Brenk
on the beats and Bonny on vocals and fluegelhorn. It's got a stripped to the essentials vibe that reminds us of some of favorite sounds of classic hip hop soul. Really strong stuff! The beats carry a raw soul and hip hop funk vibe and it's given some added depth thanks to strong, hazy vocals by Miles – along with his solid work on flugelhorn. Titles include "Seein' Doe", "Chakal", "Don't Stop", "Sprinkle", "Dr. Strange", "All I Know", "10 Minutes", "Let It Rain", "Rain Don't Stop Me Now", "Lystics", "Really", "Get This Money", "Stars Shine" and "Moving On" and in a nod to classic hip hop albums, a series of "skits" – but don't think those are filler – these little interludes are purely musical and indispensable!
