Jeff just seems to be getting better. On this mixtape he features some of the hottest new songs along with classics from back in the day and it all seems to make sense together the way he mixes them. Shout out to LRG and Complex for sponsoring it.

Mateo previews Suite 823 [Exclusive]

July 11, 2012  |  Behind the Scenes, Soul/R&B  |  Leave A Comment



Mateo’s upcoming project, Suite 823 is a real evolution for him. He invited me to Raphael Saadiq’s studio in LA (where he recorded a lot of it) and he played me 6 new amazing songs.

Mateo actually released one of the songs from Suite 823 this week. It’s called ‘Carry On‘ which you can download for free just below.

“I came up with the song while literally walking through the streets of NYC,” Mateo explains, “The song is about those situations when you are talking to a girl who is still tied to a bad relationship and you are telling her that you can take her from that situation. It’s the idea that if you are happier when you’re around me then lets ‘carry on’ to a happier life.”
