So I just discovered these cats and they are dope indeed. One of the central creative figures appears to be Erik Rico a producer/writer/singer with an extensive list of credits including production and co-writes for Ladybug Mecca, Mystic, Dave Ghetto, Planet Asia and more. His latest release is his solo album “Journey Back To Me” which is a soulful affair with futuristic broken beats, hip-hop, jazz and all kinds of other good stuff.
