Indie Rap Artist Blends Contemporary Jazz With Hip Hop Beats on New Instrumental Album

Sean XLG

Nationwide — Years ago when music was played on turntables, you would hear the sounds of static and needle skips from a record during the course of a song. Well, Washington, DC-based rap artist/producer Sean XLG has added these sound effects into his newly released instrumental album titled “There’s A Party Inside My Car”.

Aside from a retro feel, the music offers a perfect blend of old-school rhythms and dance beats with a hint of jazz. Considered “adult contemporary hip-hip”, this timeless work is a smooth transition that reflects the growth and evolution of an art form that was born over 40 years ago.

Tracklist:
1. Whoomp! Here It Is Again
2. For Ol Skool Dances Only
3. Bass (How Low Can You Go-Go)
4. Everybody Move and No One Gets Hurt
5. Drunk Off of Funk
6. Somethin’ for the Grown N Sexy
7. The Beat Made Me Do It
8. Moments In Lovin’ Hip Hop
9. Next Door to Tom’s Diner
10. If Hip Hop and Jazz Had Sex
11. 25th Dynasty (Back To Life)
12. Krush Groove 2021

Sean XLG states, “I actually came up with the concept of adult contemporary hip hop 20 years ago. Once I realized the industry was changing and fans and artists were getting older, it just made sense to create a style of music that reflects a continuation of growth. People who love hip hop at 35 have a different lifestyle than they did at 18 so the music should reflect the same level of maturity. This album is an instrumental piece which will set the stage for a vocal release in September.”

The music is also a throwback to the 80s with songs like “Krush Grove” which pays homage to the 1985 classic film that starred Run-DMC, the Fat Boys, and Kurtis Blow. Sean adds, “Back in the day, rap as an art form was diverse. We had everything from dance, comedy, and slow jams to messages. Over the years, the music has gone into a different direction in terms of lyrical content and this is what we’re getting ready to bring back.”
