DonnieCoupe’s playfully experimental approach to Old School Hip Hop in their recently released single “Tomorrow” is as refreshing as it is unforgettable.
Tomorrow kicks off with a unique take on Alicia Morton’s iconic track Tomorrow before progressing into a solid downtempo Jam with steady beats and an infusion of Jazz to amplify warmth of the mix.
While none of our tomorrow’s are going to be quite as lit or exciting as the hedonism which is contained in DonnieCoupe’s track for quite a while, it’s still a resolving track to sink into and soak up the soul.
Yet, DonnieCoupe does use his lyrical wit to serve a stark reminder that we’re never guaranteed today or tomorrow. Even in the midst of a pandemic that’s easy to forget. So, mortality reaffirming tracks which celebrate life such as this one will always be necessary on the airwaves and our playlists.
