Elujay is launching a grassroots movement out of Oakland that sounds different from most of the hip hop coming out of the bay. His brand of R&B-influenced rap rooted in instrumental music rather than booming 808s. This summer he's impressed with "Flagrant" and "We Don't Mind"; over the weekend he returned with "Onetime!", a sultry, uplifting jam organized around a quivering electric piano groove.
He recruits the same production collective that's more or less produced his last two releases in Wax Roof, Kev Choice, and Drew Banga.
Listen to "Onetime!" and follow Elujay on SoundCloud.
