In anticipation of his debut album’s release, Young Steff has followed in the footsteps of Atlantic labelmates Gnarls Barkley, Serena Ryder, and Bobby Ray by releasing a preview EP, Slow Jukin’. Though the EP’s title track and lead single has been circulating for a minute now, it’s never too late to help it pick up some extra steam. Enjoying a night at the club, Steff asks the DJ to throw his record on so he can get a little Slow Jukin’ from the ladies in the spot. The artist’s falsetto vocals and Chris “Tek” O’Ryan’s slow-jam boardwork will remind many of various The-Dream and Tricky Stewart collabos, but don’t be so quick to scream “Ripoff!” and assign the track a one-star rating—Tek and Steff are simply putting their own spin on a formula that works. Jump It Off has yet to receive a solid release date.
