Take one soul heavyweight, 'Billy Paul', hailing from Philly who has graced the stage with Miles Davis, Nina Simone and Roberta Flack amongst other legendary artists. Fuse him with Obba Supa (Project MoonCircle), an innovative uk hip hop duo (hot off collaborations with Evil Ed, John Robinson and Floating Points) and you receive the eagerly anticipated:
OBBA SUPA VS BILLY PAUL
Following on from the inspired TO:AM FREE:AM this mixtape authentically blends the deliciously dulcet tones of Billy Paul with Hey!Zeus's erroneously placed beats complemented by the talented wordsmith Teknical Development. Mellifluous live flute and sax from Radimo float over guest appearance from Ray Vendetta, Vague and Bad FX. On this soulful ten track Obba Supa blend their early love of musical fusion and live instrumentation with carefully crafted snippets of Billy Paul's back catalogue. This is a mixtape rooted in the musical dynamism of Philladelphia and the eclectic sounds of London.
