I don’t know about everyone else, but if ever I needed motivational music, now is the time. With the gloomy Minneapolis winter in full swing, the idea of curling up in a cave and sleeping till spring is seeming more and more attractive with every passing day. For those who can’t afford to hibernate, though, the latest single from Dujeous, the NYC hip-hop septet who brought us Booth-exclusive freestyle Shuttle Bus, should provide a much-needed energy boost. Spectacular finds emcees Mojo, Mas D, and Rheturik spitting about the ambition that keeps them grinding when the going gets toughest, flowing over their bandmates’ compulsively head-nodding, piano-led groove. Topped off with an anthemic hook by veteran soul songstress Sharon Jones, this track oozes determination – in other words, it’s perfect to enjoy with coffee on a frigid, cloudy winter morning. Day In, Day Out, Dujeous’ sophomore full-length, isn’t set to drop till March 2010, but fans should watch for this single’s somewhat less upbeat B-side, Death and Taxes, to hit our front page next week.
