Track of the Week: Hazy Year – ‘One Of these Days’

This week we bring you a tidy chill-hop rework of a gospel classic, ‘It’ll All be Over’ by the Supreme Jubilees. Producer Hazy Year's smart use of vocal chops overlays a steady, crisp hip-hop beat and weighty bassline to give an urban twist to this biblical beat.

The original comes the California gospel sextet Supreme Jubilees' 1981 album 'It'll All Be Over'. As the title track, it's actually one of the record's slower jams, exhibiting light, soulful keys and patient vocals reminiscent of a Sunday service. Check out tracks like "Do You Believe" and "You Don’t Know" for a heftier groove, although don’t expect them to lay off the preaching.

Hazy Year is a beatmaker from Norway and his latest EP was released just this week, entitled ‘NO TXPXS ALLOWED’. It's a collation of tracks he's released over the last year and packs a decent beat. Tucked in there you'll find a track ‘Chirp’ that reworks anime classic ‘One Summer’s Day’, a track that (If you’ll remember correctly) we shared an edit of a few months ago by Californian producer Jinsang.

While you're there, also take a listen to Hazy Year’s release ‘I’m Lost’ which has seen him receive a fair bit of notice online. It's a well manufactured, head-nodding jam perfect for a summer Sunday (regardless of whether you're in church as the Supreme Jubilees would certainly want you to be).
