8PM – BOO SEEKER
This hip-hop-psych-soul/dream-tronica project started life as an outlet for a couple of musical experiments, a kind of soul petrie dish, a testing ground for new sounds. And it's growing, fast. The duo have released their first single Kingdom Leader. A song that drips sexual foreplay. Builds and builds and subtly massages the soul.
