Mayer Hawthorne – I Need You

Dieser Mayer Hawthorne ist einfach ein Gott. Dieses großartige Cover des Otis Leavill Songs „I Need You“ wurde von Nottz produziert. Die 12″ kann man sich bei Stones Throw vorbestellen. Von dieser Kollabo kann ich mir in Zulunft definitiv noch mehr vorstellen.

„I met Nottz at Nightlife’s Dilla Tribute in L.A. and we just kept in contact. I had always been a fan of Nottz since the 90s. He sent me a bunch of beats and at first I had no idea what to do with any of them, but eventually it hit me. I sang a hook for him on his album as well.

The song is a cover of a cat named Otis Leavill which is one of my all time fav soul sides, but relatively unknown 45. I don’t think Nottz even knew it. I actually even made up some of the words because no one could make out what he said in the original. ha!

When Nottz sent me that batch – that particular beat stood out. It had the same chord progression as the Otis Leville, so I just went with it.” – Mayer Hawthorne“
