Sunset Cities is a collaborative project that combines the creative forces of MC’s Nelson Dialect and Cazeaux O.S.L.O. over the production of Skomes and Alnitak Kid. “Oh Baby” is a nod to the grandeur of the Mo-town sound made for the back seat of your car when you are within love and the lonely corner of a bar when you are out of love.
Oh Baby!” Call it out when you are high on love. “Oh Baby!” cry it out when that same love gets you low.
Over the soulful, trunk rattling production of Melbourne beat-maker Skomes, rapper/poets Nelson Dialect and Cazeaux O.S.L.O. weigh in on their perspective of love and loss. This track highlights the lyrical heavyweights’ mastery of their individual cadence and sound and simultaneously solidifies their union on record as a supergroup comfortable with the allure of boom bap basics and the challenge of great storytelling.
The one and only Jace XL (Hiatus Kaiyote, Rhythm Section Records) brings this track home with a single question. “Do you love now love?” Do you?
In the age of all things aimed toward instant gratification, “Oh Baby!” is both a love and anti-love anthem sent from the heart by two bluesmen of the new century.
