Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One)
Soul City connects the dots between hip hop, soul, funk and disco, dipping into classic tracks and brand new sounds from around the world.
Each Friday we invite our favourite selectors to dig deep and take us on a trip through some of their most-loved party tunes and soul-inspired grooves.
This week are funk powerhouse Tuxedo, otherwise known as Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One. The Grammy nominated duo first came together in 2006 through an exchange of mixtapes, and since then they have released their debut album on Stones Throw, and with new music in the offing for 2017, we should be hearing some special unreleased cuts in their DJ set at Soul City.
