Ever since I discovered Miles Bonny awhile back and his project Lumberjack Soul, I’ve been a Miles fan to say the least. The soulful raspiness in Miles’ voice and the way he incorporates the trumpet within his music, I think is real dope–not to mention, his music is just dope.
With that being said, when I heard Miles was releasing a new project with producer B.Lewisand heard the first leak from the project, “Together Forever,” and “Bottom to Top,” I was really excited. Finally, well last week, the duo released their collaborative Egg Black EP, with collaboration from NYC based Prism Media collective in association with NYC based music/ lifestyle magazine The Couch Sessions and LA based apparel brand Orisue.
The EP is fully loaded with hard-hitting slaps, heavy bass thumps, melodic rhythms, and deep soul-filled vocals, one listen through Egg Black is enough to know you’ve got something special. Miles Bonny’s sultry deep intonation through B.Lewis’ breakdown-filled electro-soul beats is a combination that will surely define the soundscape of the future. Miles’ midwest lumberjack soul seductively amalgamates B.Lewis’ eclectic Cali-blip-and-synth influenced production, conjuring genuine emotion which we, as music lovers, can effortlessly relate to our individual life experiences, hardships, and successes.
