Latest release from Paris-based duo is a neo-soul homage to psych-soul legend, Shuggie Otis. Shout out to Strawberry Letter 23, a timeless classic and one of my favorite songs ever.
SuperParka put a quick, modern twist on Otis', "Special," showcasing their flirtation with lo-fi hip hop and influences like Jai Paul. The French have a knack for electronic production and no one can argue that. Paco and Simon, the dudes behind SuperParka, have said it themselves, "It's nearly the only thing we legally have the right to do as french guys."
"Special" marks their third single of 2020, following "You," a track I put on my weekly playlist, and "Kawabunga!" I hope this cover boosts your mood during these uncertain and difficult times. Stay healthy.
