Louisville, Kentucky duo Otis Junior & Dr. Dundiff released their first full-length through Berlin-based soul label Jakarta‘s Dubplate series. 1Moment2Another was an exceptionally soulful, highly underrated debut, and their next effort is shaping up to be a considerable improvement. The lead single off their forthcoming record, “Why Cant You (Just Come For Conversation),” is a beautifully funky joint–one of our favorite tracks of the year. Riffing on a vibe similar to Knxwledge and Anderson Paak.‘s NxWorries project, soul vocalist Otis Junior and producer Dr. Dundiff (aka Roman Aprile) bring out the best in each other on this incredibly fresh single.
Otis Junior & Dr. Dundiff’s new album Hemispheres is out March via Jakarta. Preorder it here and listen to their first record below.
