Song of the Day - Y Society: "Never Off (On & On)

This gem came my way courtesy of my brother, who first heard it on Mike Nardone's excellent We Came From Beyond hip hop radio show. Anyone who is familiar with the excellent track record of Mr. Nardone knows that when anyone who appears on his playlists is definitely worth a listen.

Basically it took all of 30 seconds to convince me that Y Society have some serious skills. After falling in love with all the songs on their MySpace page I decided to immediately buy their debut album Travel at Your Own Pace and I could not be happier with the purchase. The production is smooth and tight, while the lyrical delivery of Insight and Damu the Fudgemunk are reminiscent of some of my favorite duos from back in the day like Showbiz and AG or Pete Rock and CL Smooth.

Within an hour of being introduced to this group I was singing their praises to all my co-workers and friends. Since there hasn't been much written about Y Society on the blogosphere, I felt it was my duty to do my part to spread the word. Hopefully you like this track and take it upon yourselves to keep the word of mouth active.
