Last year, Oakland-bred emcee Elujay made a considerable shift when he decided to wholly introduce listeners to a more soulful and melodic side of his artistry, effectively transitioning from the role of emcee to a newfound title of crooner.
Dropping off funk-filled bops such as "Starchild" and "Litle Thangs," fans awaited what has come to be the first full-length output of this shift in sound in the form of Adojio. Equipped with seven tracks total, the Adojio EP features the previsouly-released singles "Starchild" and "Blu," but passes on cuts like "Locked In" and "Little Thangs." Previously, Elujay's full-length album was tentatively-titled OdysseyofSelf. There's no clear indication if that will still be coming or if those two tracks will find a home there if it should arrive.
Until then, get well-acquainted with Elujay and his Adojio EP.
