Arizona has that heat that makes roadkill sizzle on the streets, thus it makes perfect sense that Phoenix transplant Scholar breezes air-conditioned lyrics on his brand new, smoothed-out single, Intoxicating. Featured vocals from Archapello give this track an extra push, but those unfamiliar with the duo may attribute the ‘ooh’’s and ‘ahh’’s to moaning sound-master The-Dream. (The comparisons aren’t that canny, though.) Scholar’s artistic flow over ‘Pello’s R&B-driven production has not only built this young up-and-comer into an underground sensation in Arizona, but proves he might just have what it takes to make it on the big stage. Intoxicating marks the arrival of a promising Southwestern artist… one not named Willy Northpole.
