You wouldn’t be able to tell if you’re in the upper Midwest, but summer is definitely here. To me, the season is all about kicking back and taking it easy; there’s nothing quite like sitting on your porch with a guitar, lazily strumming away as the kids play in the neighbor’s yard. That, or driving around with some good warm-weather music banging out of my car speakers. The latest street single from Juice, Classic, fits the ‘summer jam’ archetype to a tee. This single, which is being promoted alongside Can’t Crush My Cool, has a lot to offer those who dug the previously-featured cut—Classic‘s beat rides a similar tempo, but Alex Da Kid serves up a selection of sampled guitars and horns that’s more organic than the slick synths with which Drumma Boy backed its dual-single counterpart, and Juice’s flow feels more laid-back than ever before. The Anticipated, due out sometime this fall, will arrive a little late to bump in the car with the windows down (at least up here in Minnesota); until then, though, this track will fit nicely into my driving mixes.
