Eric Lau and Guilty Simpson -- "Yesterday"

Posted By on Tue, Jan 10, 2012 at 12:24 PM

Smoothed out British producer Eric Lau is currently in the process of releasing an EP entitled The Mission with Detroit emcee Guilty Simpson. Frankly I'll say it's the first 2012 release with Detroit roots that I'm anxiously anticipating. Their paring is an odd one: Guilty often raps some of the darkest material a person sitting at a halfway house would ever want to hear while Lau creates beats that are more synthed out and jazzy. On paper, it doesn't seem like they would fit but judging by their first single, "Yesterday," their paring is going to work out just fine.

I've got a line out to Eric Lau directly via his record label, Kilawatt Music, currently and hope to report back on the entire EP shortly. For now just enjoy the music. The Mission EP is set for release on February 3rd.
