We have some tapes on the way very soon (we promise), but in the meantime the Easy Bay crew has cooked up another free pair of tunes for our ongoing Easy Bay Digital Singles Series. This time around Oakland's own North County delivers two slow-burning house endeavors in the form of the flute-heavy "Crusin' Grand" and piano-drenched "Del Dios."
North County is a relatively new collaborative project between Oakland producers Matthew Tamariello (aka Shortcircles) and Glenn Jackson (who is also a co-founder of the Easy Bay effort). Heavily inspired by the music played at long-running Oakland party thePeople, the North County project ventures out into the dreamier ends of the Easy Bay spectrum. The two tracks offered on this new single blend new age/cosmic jazz vibes with stoney house music for a pair of tunes that are primed for those early moments in the night when the dancefloor is just starting to fill up with brave souls.
