Slum Village’s “Request” is another single from their upcoming spring release FUN. Group member and producer Young RJ handled the midnight vibes of the song which has the Abstract Orchestra and Big Sean collaborator rapper Earlly Mac in the credits. It was eight years ago when the group released Yes! Last year they announced FUN with the release of the first single, “Just Like You” featuring Larry June and The Dramatics. FUN will drop in the spring and the duo will return to Europe for the FUN Since 92 tour. You can see them next month at the Blue Note with Chris Rob and his band the week following what would have been group founder J.Dilla’s 50th birthday.

Slum Village announce their first new album in seven years with “Just Like You” featuring Larry June and The Dramatics. Young RJ and T3 have kept busy since Vol. 0 with solo projects and features but they have now returned to their SV home. In 2022, Young RJ released his World Tour album. “Just Like You” is a flirting session with a potential date and the added enticement from The Dramatics’ vintage soul. Young RJ produced “Just Like You” which straddles both an R&B and hip-hop groove. The new song and album announcement comes not long after the premiere of the New York Times J. Dilla documentary. “Just Like You” is another chapter in the legacy of the group he co-founded with Baatin and T3 years ago.  The Great Escape is scheduled for an August release.
