Overview

Nashville's homegrown hip-hop duo have been trying to burst onto the world stage for over a decade. They made some major strides with 2002's Art of Translation, and the Dichotomy projects (A ships in June, followed by volume B in November) could make Bonafide and Coffee household names. "Smooth" aptly describes project A, its hip-hop rhythms tempered by R&B-inspired vocals and laid-back beats. While at times this urban ease makes the tracks bleed into one another, there are many standouts here. Among them are the jazz-inflected "Pardon Me Yo," where a soft, echoing horn gives the backing track an unusually cosmopolitan feel. The R&B tone of "Get Down" makes things decidedly sultry, while "Blowin' Your Mind" borders on '70s-style Motown. The nice 'n' easy beats mean there are few real dance tracks, but things get hopping on the closer, "Sunshine," which offers infectious world-beat grooves. If Grits are determined to make a big name for themselves, Dichotomy A could be the collection to do it
