In case you’re not keeping up, Kev & J are killing it on the collaborative tip. Just earlier this year, they dropped the damn-near flawless Stray From The Pack with heater singles like “Orange Julius Landover Mall.” And that trend continues as they team up with maticulous on this low-key slapper.
“Close Range” is also another stellar example of the producer’s ability to perfectly complement his collaborators. He did exactly that on his previous single, “Home Goin’,” which featured slick storytelling from Guilty Simpson. And on “Close Range,” we get to hear Kev & J vibe along with this dust-covered instrumental, which drives the track with looping guitars and vocal hits as well as crunchy drums.
“Close Range’” is available now through your preferred digital retailer or streaming platform and is set to appear on maticulous’ compilaiton LP, no caps, due out Oct 01. In addition to Kev, J and Guilty, the project also includes guest appearances by Homeboy Sandman, Skyzoo, Breeze Brewin, Uptown XO, yU, and more. The album will be available on 180g red vinyl in addition to all major DSPs.
