You know what they say, if at first you succeed keep doing the same thing you did before, only with a different topic. (Ok, so maybe that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but you get the point.) Following the initial success of their Breaking Open the Head single, Chicago natives Mathien and Neak have combined forces once again for new release Feet, making its world premiere right here, right now. Singer/writer/producer Mathien gets his Bo Jackson on for Feet, playing on both sides of the proverbial ball, not only crafting a supremely funky, live drum driven beat for the duo to rap over, but also providing equally stylized sung and rapped vocals to keep the track moving. But that doesn’t make Neak just a hanger-on; the Ready to Go emcee can get pretty damn funky on the mic himself. While the duo have yet to announce a full collaborative project (hint, hint guys) fans can keep it locked to The DJBooth for more Mathien music and the release of Neak’s Love Greater // The Prequel album, hitting our pages for free stream and download soon.
