Joey Dosik honed his craft as part of a burgeoning Los Angeles scene that reinvents classic popular music to thrive in the present tense. With Inside Voice, Dosik delivers a level of depth rarely achieved in a debut, and the result is an instant classic by any standard. It’s brimming with emotions that linger and hum. It’s catchy as hell and can haunt you for days. You can take a casual listen or spend hours on repeat. Either way, Inside Voice will get you, because Joey Dosik writes human music for human beings. And boy does he write the hell out of it.

Title track “Inside Voice” builds gradually into 1970s-style soul, as Dosik’s remarkable vocal range hovers over a sparse arrangement. It’s quiet but — in keeping with the song’s concept, which Dosik describes as “deep, sexual, but also kind of silly”— it’s also a thrilling, intimate moment. “Take Mine” plays with negative space and a repetitive, gut-punching melody; what feels like a love song is actually a plea for unity against the turbulent backdrop of present-day politics. Throughout, Dosik does a remarkable job of honoring and evolving classic sounds, letting his uncanny gift for songwriting guide the way.

SassyBlack is an unexplored galaxy made of fist-pump, funk, and beat-fertility. Her organic blend of experimental hip-hop, unpredictable syncopation and neon-womanism, Silver and Gold, is geeked-out and polished in the absolute best abnormal way. The fanny-pack-hologram has been billed the "hardest working" multi-layered performer on the West Coast and with praise from Bitch Magazine, The Fader, Okayplayer, Pitchfork and Afropunk, it's easy to see SassyBlack is weaving her vocals and celestial style in a way that is unapologetic and funk worthy. After debuting her solo work in Berlin, Barcelona, London and the states, she's releasing Wakanda Funk Lounge (Way It Goes, Wakanda Bounce) summer of 2018 and fans and neo-soul-funk specialist all agree there is deeper satisfaction in SassyBlack's evolution.
