Premiere: Muzzy Bearr – ‘Seduction Cup’
If you're a fan of the electro-funk scene, you may not know the name Muzzy Bearr, but chances are you've seen him performing live. He has been future funk leader and fellow Detroit producer GRiZ's live and studio guitarist for some time. Thus, it is only appropriate that he is making his debut on the GRiZ-fronted All Good Records imprint with his Vintage Sutra EP.
As you might have expected from the release, the EP comes with the kind of electronic soul/funk tunes that are right at home at the All Good Records camp. While throwing in elements of future bass, hip-hop and juke, Muzzy Bearr has crafted a debut release that is entirely unique.
Featured on the six-track release are a variety of fellow funk scenesters, including Exmag & Branx, brass extraordinaire Benny Bloom (who has provided the brass-work for Shady Horns, Lettuce and Pretty Lights), and saxophone from All Good Records-flagbearer GRiZ. The release's opening track "Suede" also features Detroit rapper Denmark Vessey, rounding out an impressive collection of collaborations.
As we await the official April 14 release of Vintage Sutra, we've gotten our first taste of the EP, which comes in the form of its first single, "Seduction Cup." Sexy guitar solos combine with the track's spacey synth progressions for a jammy, funkdified baby-making anthem.
Like all of the music released on the All Good imprint, this EP will be available for free. Stay tuned for more music from the release to come soon. In the mean time, check out the EP's hilarious trailer and Muzzy Bearr's tour dates as he supports GRiZ on his 'Say It Loud Tour' below.
