KOTCHY & SHUNDA K (of Yo Majesty) present free EP!

Man, I was surprised how into Kotchy you people are... not because he isn't good... no no no... but because he's from NY and this is a Britblog! But, alas, every time he's been posted you guys lap it up.

Well you can thank our cross Atlantic connects at Fabric for hooking us up with this wicked freebie (and therefore making it qualify for posting) with not just Kotchy but also Shunda K from Yo Majesty!

Both one's to watch for 09; Brooklyn beat master Kotchy and Yo Majesty's Shunda K have been getting it on in the studio. What else is going between them or not we have no idea, but by the sounds of their new EP our favorite Lady Loving(?) Rapper Miss K and the highly sought superstar producer Mr K are definitely getting some good lovin. Tracks like this don't come about without what they so aptly call "Le Passion" that much is plain.

The record oozes style. Steamy, sultry and emotive. Tales of modern love pull at your heart strings like big budget Hollywood. Le Passion, Yo! EP (2009) is as energetic and danceable as it is smooth and seductive. Shunda K's lyrical flow is as tongue twisting as ever, but free from Yo Majesty's "Kryptonite Pussy" she's tender and heartfelt. Kotchy's trademark drums and beats and diverse production make these tracks something special. The combination of Shunda's hazy lazy, come to bed lyrics and Kotchy's hushed breathy vocals is in places spine tingling in others tear jerking. Its beautifully sleazy, hyper modern, ultra slick, heart on the sleeve time. The two have already been performing these and other tracks at a few shows in NY but we figure these lost lovers will have to do the long distance thing for a while. Kotchy's off to the UK and Europe with his debut album and live show , while Shunda's gonna be more than hectic with the Yo Majesty world tour. They're definitely gonna be ready for some more TLC when they get back together and we can't wait for the next batch. Maybe its their reminder that we all need the tender touch once in a while.


This one really is for all you forward thinking future music people... I hope you enjoy it as much as I have :) Be back soon!
