After wowing audiences with their debut EP “The Lilac Pack”, vsteeze and Funky DL return with their incredibly polished follow-up set, “The Honey Pack”. This quartet of tracks change direction from the previous pack, capturing the sun beaming feeling of summer with DL’s beats and steeze’s rhymes.
Focusing on "good feeling of summer vibes", the lead single “Groove” is a Latin guitar bop with unpredictable bass tones oozing in and out throughout, whilst steeze and featured collaborator PF Elle dabble in a lyrical chemistry, jocosely bouncing over the beat.
The second single “Mélange” takes the EP up-tempo with the retro 80’s funk feel of Cameo, but with a contemporary twist, whilst steeze melodically integrates her vocals and spits 16-bars of her bouncy flow and hot lyricism. Meanwhile, Funky DL showcases his immense diversity as Producer in formulating the dance-floor driven backing track.
“The Honey Pack EP” is a sweet, liquid and smooth piece of audio, combining the talents of these two artists, producing a level of creative finesse that is so much missed in Hip-Hop today.
