An Audio Diva Christmas: 'X-Mas Time' For The 'Grown & Sexy' People

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

There have been many new Christmas songs that have sort of grazed on past me leaving little impression on me. Yet, the collaboration between DJ Jazzy Jeff and Ayah was one slice of Christmas newness that caught my attention and held it. Combing back in the archives, you might have come across a rave about the duo's upcoming collaboration by way of their sampler, This Way, when it dropped this past Spring. While we won't be seeing the fruits of their musical collaboration labor till next year, they have managed to tide us over again with something of the holiday persuasion.

For those who tire of the traditional jubilant of sugar coated carols, Ayah and Jeff have the remedy in track, "X-Mas Time". Released for funsies, the duo along with co-producer and Roots member, James Poyser (who also lent a pen to Mariah Carey's holiday album this year) heat up a cup of soul fit for those who like a 'grown & sexy' Christmas. And just because we are in the season of giving, they are giving away the track for free. That is clearly better than a Red Rider BB Gun (remember, it will shoot your eye out).

Soul Bounce hipped me this collaboration, and I'm glad they did, considering that this will probably find a place on a new holiday playlist of mines very soon.
