It’s Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean the music stops. On this catch up awe have some new music from SaveMoney’s KAMI and hometown FBG-affiliate Zona Man who impressed with a star-studded release. As always, get into the songs below here and catch them streaming 24/7 on our radio station, Mild Sauce Radio.
KAMI • From Me To You
If the last year is any indication, SaveMoney’s KAMI just may emerge as the surprise release king of Chicago, after following up his Just Like The Movies.. and Superstar EP last year he’s back with a trio of singles just in time for Valentine’s Day appropriately titled, From Me To You. Here we get some sinewy, sing-song bars from KAMI that stay relatively light-hearted and similarly draped in vocal stylistics reminiscent of recent releases. Despite that, this one feels like a bit of a departure from where we last found him soaking up the 80s-era dance floor vibes alongside Knox Fortune and that could have something to do with the audible on production which comes from Super King, Andrew Luce and Harlan Silverman. The bread of this Valentine’s Day sandwich happens to be two versions of the same song, “You’re Mine”, each of which takes the sentiment in a convincing different direction. It’s that time of year and KAMI seems to be ready to set the mood for folks ahead of Joey Purp’s Empty Bottle show tonight. Check it out below.
Zona Man • Bout Time
Late last Fall, while getting the legs under this site, I often found myself sharing an office with Zona Man’s son, who often filled the time his Dad spent in the adjacent studio playing video games and watching TV as Zona hung out between takes. Unassuming, focused and immediately friendly, my first impression of Zona is similar to the perspective of his latest project, Bout Time. While the local FBG-signee has been quiet for some time, he flexed hard on this project, calling in a bevy of names including Future, Young Thug, Bump J and Tory Lanez for the features while C-Sick, D. Brooks, Southside and some fresh faces in Donn Robb and Oz lace the production side of things. Top-to-bottom, it’s hard not to be excited at the prospect of this one, Zona certainly made sure he got the star power for this one, with plenty more on the way. If you weren’t already paying attention it’s, well, Bout Time.
