I immediately fell in love with this as soon as I heard it. I spotted this on Kevin Nottingham and something about the soft, mellow blue tones of the video made me click on it and that was all it took. With their jazzy sounds and mellow rhymes, Exact Change just picked up a new fan. I didn’t know much about them so I check out their website and found the following bio.
Exact Change consists of Luge and Formula J, a duo from Queens, New York, that is temporarily living in Buenos Aires, Argentina while they work on their debut album. They are taking hip hop down a new road, along the journey embarking upon musical adventures, while exploring the genre’s jazzy roots. Their music is strongly influenced from a combination of New York City and international living, as well as the members’ musical roots in hip-hop, funk, and jazz. Together, they present an original fusion of styles, sounds, and sentiments. Luge’s piano driven beats are organic, soulful, and inventive, while Formula J’s lyrics are a reflection of life, lyricism, and imagination, delivered with original cadences and flows. It’s a very natural, evolutionary process, and the music will surely continue to transform and reinvent itself. “It’s time for that.”
I checked out more of their music and for me, they are two out of two. Check out this one here:
