After the release of Private-Beats mixtapes Vol.1 and Vol.2, packed full of Funk, Soul and Hip-Hop beats, Stanley Bloom and Mike Ro Wave are due to release a full album titled Pacific Shore. It’s the product of a California road trip and sees collaborations with artists from Montréal (Sarah Linhares), Copenhagen (Furns), New York (Ellementt) and Paris (Jazzy Bazz), while still retaining the West Coast sound of their mixtapes. Road 1 is the excellent first single off the album, with an even better video that captures the very best sights of America’s Golden State. It’s a prime example of the audiovisual angle the duo are taking on this album and we can’t wait to hear more when it drops on 6 June.
