Super shouts to Prefix Magazine, who checked in with a dope review of Day In Day Out earlier this week.
New York hip-hop outfit Dujeous have come a long way since releasing their debut, City Limits, back in 2004. The past eight years have been kind to the band, which features three rappers/singers, a pair of producers who also play bass and guitars, and trumpet player Dave Guy.
You might know Guy as a member of the Dap Kings and Menahan Street Band, which likely led Dujeous to linking with Sharon Jones for their sophomore album's catchy-as-hell single, "Spectacular." Said album, Day In Day Out, also finds the group teaming with the likes of John Legend and Immortal Technique.
You might think that such attention-commanding voices might overpower those of their hosts. But it's actually quite the opposite. Jones, Tech, and Legend perfectly complement Dujeous vocalists Mojo, Mas D, and Rheturik across the brass-and-bass grooves here. If you like your boom-bap with a strong dose of funk, jazz, and soul, you shouldn't be sleeping on Day In Day Out.
