Big Crown is proud to present this must have two-sider from El Michels Affair.
The A side “Reasons” is a collaboration that is sure to get all the Soul collectors very, very excited. Last time Bobby Oroza was in New York El Michels invited him to the studio to cut a tune together. Bobby took this opportunity to take us all on a journey to the existential side of his mind on this gorgeous and ethereal ballad covered in lush guitar notes. Oroza’s voice finds it’s place perfectly over the track, talking us through the human struggle and still creating that energy that is uniquely his and has become his signa- ture sound.
The B side “Hipps” is pulled from El Michels Affair’s recently released modern masterpiece Adult Themes. In a day and age when the album format is being taken over by singles and playlists Adult Themes is a record that truly has to be listened to in the context of the whole album to be understood. This made it hard for us to pick a tune from it for this 7”. “Hipps” cuts in with a crushing drum beat and is quickly joined by the unmistakable horn arrange- ments that Leon has become famous for. In true EMA fashion the arrangement on this piece can’t be touched, closing one’s eyes and listening will induce anyone to a vivid visual fantasy. It turns out to be something of a chapter from a book, and we recommend you treat yourself to the front to back experience of Adult Themes.

Time (You and I) This song would have been sad for me in the past as I would think I was alone and couldn't have that but now has only served to remind me that I can be forever happy along with myself maurirope

The 4th track is so good, it makes my face feel like it's been peeled off my head and has been sent floating, flat as a pancake, towards the infinite edges of the universe.
I am physically unable to stop listening to this. woe_bonnet
