Ever since rocking our front page with their debut single Big City Bright Lights, Miami-based crew ArtOfficial has been a DJBooth favorite for their live-instrument foundation and innovative style, so when offered the chance to premiere their new track Doing Things Wrong we jumped at the chance like Tiger Woods on a pornstar. Produced by ArtOfficial themselves, in many ways the somber Doing Wrong is the epitome of the group’s sound, expertly combining rock and jazz influences (hence the extended piano outro) with some distinct hip-hop sensibilities on the mic, coming to us courtesy of emcees Newsense and Logics. If you ask me, musically speaking this group of up-and-comers is doing everything right. (I apologize, that was an atrocious pun, even for me.) This track is currently slated to be on HipNott Records Mixtape (Vol. 2) and ArtOfficial’s upcoming mixalbum The Payback - which you can watch being recorded here and here – both of which are slated to be released soon.
