After hearing the exciting news that Soup and Mark 7even of Jurassic 5 are joining forces to form Portable Payback, listeners will be hard-pressed to heed the advice of the duo’s debut single and simply Relax. With the two West Coast vets together again, matching each other line for dope line, alternative hip-hop aficionados are liable to have heart palpitations, so it’s a good thing that John Meyer‘s laid-back production keeps the vibe relatively mellow; a snippet of John Haseley’s oft-sampled Hammerhead instrumental imbues the hook with enough brassy swank to fuel a Bond soundtrack or three, and the verses boast a catchy, bass-fortified guitar groove. Though no details have been given regarding a debut album, this record finds the Jurassic 5 alumni in fighting form as they prepare for their triumphant return to the headphones of old-school music-lovers nationwide.
