Philly, a little over a month ago we brought you an interview with two Philadelphia hip-hop greats, DJ Jazzy Jeff and his protege Dayne Jordan. For our exclusive, we went behind-the-scenes and captured Jeff and Dayne at work in the lab and got the deets on their then-forthcoming collab. Luckily for us, the wait for this project is now over.

Yesterday, after a year of quietly releasing new music and videos, the duo has finally dropped Dayne's new EP, In Progress. The project is the compilation of nine tracks and includes Dayne's buzz-worthy singles “All About The Art”, “Fellow” and “I Want It All.” It also includes new tracks like “Wash It Down” and “Git It Back” to round out the EP.

And, trust us — Philly is definitely representing on this project music — from "All About the Art" which features Questlove on drums and James Poyser on keys, to "Lost" which has fellow Philly up-and-comer Ebony Joi lacing the track with her vocals. 

We're guessing you're ready to hear the project, right? You can download it on Dayne's website, or you can listen and download the project using the below SoundCloud player. Also, be sure to watch our exclusive in-studio interview with DJ Jazzy Jeff and Dayne Jordan to hear insights on the projects and learn more about Jeff and Dayne's favorite cheesesteak spot.

The GoGo Morrow Experience Lands At The TLA On South Street- Friday, December 19

Fresh of the release of her new single “I Like That Bae,” GoGo Morrow headlines South Street's Theater of Living Arts (The TLA) on Friday, December 19. And, we're pretty sure that fashion-forward, pop/R&B star will undoubtedly have some surprises in store for her hometown fans. 

The last time we saw GoGo headlining at the TLA, the venue was packed to the brim, and she revealed her brand new, at the time, platinum blonde look. GoGo's set and new look were both winners — solidifying her as one of the city's meteoric rising stars. 

We can only guess what’s in store for GoGo Morrow The Experience! But, whatever the star has planned, it's guaranteed to be a hit. From intricate dance moves alongside her Gogettes dancers to her stunning, heartfelt vocals, Morrow has learned from some of the best in the business. So, it’s no surprise to anyone that Morrow is taking the industry by storm.

Slowly releasing music from her LP., which she has been quietly cultivating over the last year or so, Gogo shows an unbelievable poise and polish for a young artist. Her new track “I Like That Bae” is all at once sensual and futuristic and was produced by R.A.P. 1220. Heavy Prince-like drums and synths drive the sound and most certainly carves out a lane for Morrow all her own.

The show will be full of great music — from the soulful Aaron Parnell Brown to hip hop artist Crown Bella and crooner Guordan Banks — and there will be a little something for everyone! Be sure to grab your tickets now and check out the new single “I Like That Bae” from GoGo Morrow below.

Here are a few  details on the WDAS Holiday Jam Headliners: 

Jill Scott — Jilly from Philly is coming home! The soulful singer/songwriter and poet made her rise during the Philadelphia-driven neo-soul movement of the early 2000s and has since transcended into actress, activist and much more. 

KEM — This R&B great took the world by storm with the success of his single “Love Calls.” Since then, KEM has become one of the most distinctive and unique voices in R&B. 

Ledisi — An undeniable powerhouse vocalist, Ledisi is definitely one of Philadelphia adopted daughters of soul — just ask Sound of Philadelphia mastermind Kenny Gamble. A vocalist who truly uses her voice as an instrument, Ledisi has worked with some of Philly's most notable songwriters, including Carvin and Ivan and the Philly Phatboiz

Joe — Joe's smooth vocals have helped him stand the test of time. Over his career, Joe has gone from hip-hop hooks to recording flawless throwbacks paying homage to groups like Frankie Beverly and Maze.  

Faith Evans — The first lady of Bad Boy Records, Faith Evans sultry voice continues to win over fans old and new. With a voice equally rooted in church and traditional R&B/soul and a discography full of hits, Faith Evans is 100% a legit American soul music icon.  

This show is for the music lovers and is the perfect way to groove into the holiday spirit. So, be sure to grab your ticket as we’re sure they are going quickly!
