Back in Business

A 5 track jazz rap/hip-hop ep (17m 40s) — released November 17th 2017 on LOA Records Ltd

Multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Adam Gibbons (aka Lack of Afro) first saw Wax & Herbal T back in 2009 after being sent a video of them in their car freestyling over his cover of the Arctic Monkeys track 'When The Sun Goes Down'. Blown away by their incredible wordplay & lyrical dexterity, he immediately contacted the brothers about guesting on his next album, 'My Groove Your Move', released in 2009. Luckily for him they said yes…

Fast forward 8 years and collectively they have appeared on 6 Lack of Afro originals including the monster hit 'P.A.R.T.Y' (licensed by Adidas, Miller Lite, ABC and Fox to name but a few), whilst Adam has returned the favour by producing 6 originals for their own solo projects, with combined YouTube views totalling in excess of 10 million.

Wax & Herbal T are twin brothers that rap and write/produce music. In 2006 they released their breakthrough album, 'Grizzly Season', gained a considerable following on YouTube and now have in excess of 365,000 channel subscribers and 100 million combined views.

As a solo artist, Wax has released 3 solo albums, 2 mixtapes and several collaborative projects with other musicians. He was signed to Def Jam Records for a stint between 2010 & 2012 and now releases his music through his own label Scrublife. Herbal T released his solo album 'Lo-Fi Blow Dry' in 2014 to widespread critical acclaim.

Kicking things off here is the irresistibly catchy title track 'Back In Business' – a funk-soaked tour de force of live musicianship, huge drums and a chorus that will stay in your head for weeks!

'Take It Up A Notch' then does exactly what it says on the tin, keeping the dance-floor packed and cranking the party vibes right up to 11.

'Ride' is reminiscent of hazy 70's west coast radio – underpinned with a groove to make your head snap and combined with Wax's wistful vocals, it's the obvious soundtrack for your next road trip.

'Balcony' is the brothers' ode to the joys of plant-based inhalation and herbal relief, all administered with just the right dose of funk. It'll make you feel 'lovely' too…

'Cold Blooded' ends on a high note and sees the borthers go hard from the outset - their ferociously quick & aggressive wordplay perfectly complimenting Lack of Afro's savagely funky instrumental. To call it 'big' would be an understatement!
