Sly Johnson Releases New Exclusive Song ‘Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin’
Hailing from Paris, Sylvère Johnson (Sly Johnson) is a major force on the French Hip- Hop, Soul and Jazz scenes, both as a solo artist and as a member of multi awarded super-group and SAIAN SUPA CREW for over a decade, where he was known by the moniker Sly The Mic Buddah.
When the crew broke up in 2007, Johnson began to carve out an impressive career, releasing on Blue Note and Universal Jazz, as well as collaborating with Larry Gold, Roddy Rod, T3 & Elzhi from Slum Village, Wildchild of The Lootpack, Dudley Perkins, AYO, Boddhi Satva, China Moses, Jacky Terrasson, Roy Hargrove, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Erik Truffaz, Sean Price, Lucky Peterson, Juliette Greco, Talib Kweli, Anthony Joseph, Georgia Ann Muldrow, FINALE, Rapper Big Pooh, Camille and legendary French Hip-Hoppers Oxmo Puccino and IAM among many others…
Now Sly will be Makin his debut on the prestigious UK label BBE Music (J Dilla, Madlib, Pete Rock, Bilal, V, Dj Spinna…) with his 4th solo album called « 55.4 » that blends soul and hip hop, twinning vocal arrangements reminiscent of Prince and D’angelo with loose, supple, beats and jazzy chords. Most of the musical heavy lifting is done by Johnson himself, but the album features bass by Laurent Salzard, guitar by Ralph Lavital and Anthony Jambon, keys by Nicholas Vella and a spellbinding guest vocal by Jona Oak.
Why 55.4 ? “It took 55 days of creation to make the songs of this 4th solo album” says Johnson.
