Album Watch: Ayah and DJ Jazzy Jeff Show Us The Way To Go

Monday, March 22, 2010

Ever since checking out Ayah's short yet sweet first installment, 4:15 on a whim (which found it's way on my best of from last year) and her Problem Woman mixtape there after, I have been rooting for the Canadian vocalist to blow more minds with her soulful selections. She might just do that as she just finished up stompin' the stage at SXSW in Austin last week with Mayer Hawthorne and Brittany Bosco, and released a brand new sampling of what she is cooking up for her third go-around. 

Ayah is following up 4:15 with a blazing new project, that will include production work from none other than music veteran, DJ Jazzy Jeff this is one thing that looks and sounds good on paper. The duo released an album sampler in the form of This Way, which includes a hefty 12 tracks (four which are full in length) as well as my favorite track from 4:15, "He Don't Want It". This Way fully showcases how well Jeff's polished production blends nicely with Ayah's vocal chops and down-to-earth groove. If this is just an inkling to what is to come on the upcoming set, well bring on the main course! 

Check after the cut for a listen to two tracks from the set and then dig the freebie download to get your sampling in a larger dose. [via SB]
