Letter of Recommendation | Sopadelic by Young Bull

Young Bull, an up-and-coming music group from Durham, North Carolina, have been releasing music as a trio since 2016, their debut was marked by an independently released LP called Sopadelic. With Sopadelic, Young Bull brings to the table a sound that is wholly unique. Their music is certainly abstract but distinctly Southern, fusing trap and old-school soul to create a sound that North Carolina can be proud of. In 11 songs the trio takes you on a funk/jazz/soul (and pretty much everything in between) filled trip through the struggles of dating in the modern world. Vocalist Tahmique Cameron’s infectious voice is paired masterfully with Gabe Fox-Peck’s unorthodox production. Cameron and Fox-Peck are at their best together in "Don’t Count on Me" and "Find Myself Alone With You" where they are left alone to showcase the musical tandem the two have been developing since they were playing JV basketball together.
