SMIF-N-WESSUN Ft. JAHDAN - "Shots in the Dark"

You know we're huge fans of Smif-N-Wessun here @ The Lost Tapes, and whenever they release a project is with all probability be certified heat. Their collaboration with Pete Rock on "Monumental" still gets semi-regular play at my place and was one of my favorites of that year, despite some fans feeling it wasn't up to par... Well, that's there loss. Now the Brooklyn duo of Tek N Steele is reunited once again with Duck Down for a new EP in collaboration with the talented producer duo of Beatnick & K-Salaam (who among other things produced the entirety of Murs & Fashawn's collaborative effort last year). The six-track Extended Play will fully focus on Smif-N-Wessun's love to incorporate reagge flavor into their music, something that has been a staple of their music since their debut album "Dah Shinin'" that carried powerful cuts like "Sound Bwoy Burreil" that was an homage to the sound system of the Jamican music scene. Since then they have collaborated with legends like Eek-A-Mouse and others, many times with underground toaster Jahdan who is the collaborator on the new single of the project. "Shots in the Dark" follows the magnificent Junior Reid meeting titled "Solid Ground" and is another sure-shot banger. The EP, "Born & Raised", will hit reatailers December 3 through Duck Down; read more and pre-order here.
