FAULT Weekly Playlist: EarlGréy

We love a good cup of tea in the morning and New York City native EarlGréy’s music is good for the soul too.  Following the internet success of his debut release, “Pulldown,” the rising producer returns with “Overdue,” an eclectic blend of hip-hop and neo-soul with subtle pop underpinnings.

As a member of creative collective, TheVAMP, EarlGréy has recent months collaborating with an array of talent, from industry veterans such as Ne-Yo to budding superstar MAAD. With his solo material, EarlGréy sets his sights firmly on his mission to open hearts and inspire through music and storytelling. “Overdue” is the first look at his forthcoming debut EP set for release early next year.

To satiate you in the meantime, take a listen to EarlGréy’s exclusive playlist for us.

Chance The Rapper – No Problem

“I’m a fan of Chance the Rapper/Chance the Father. Digging everything on this from the beat, to the lyrics, and trill gospel vibes…Reminds me of a feeling I got growing up in church but wavy-er.”

Jon Bellion – All Time Low

“This one inspires me in a special way. I’ve known Jon since we were younger & got to witness his growth from earlier days as an artist/ songwriter/ producer. It’s always dope to see good people w/ a great message win.”

Bruno Mars – 24K Magic

“Almost fainted the first time I heard this groove! Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a deep love affair with all things funky/groovy! Bruno, The Smeezingtons & The Stereotypes crushed this collab. Shoutout to my bros on this one.”

MAAD – Black Ice

“I’m a lil’ biased with this song & artist. Maad & I are really close and we had a blast co-writing & co-producing this with Trey Campbell & TheVAMP.”

EarlGréy x Maad – Pulldown

“This started as one of those old beats collecting dust in our computer at THEVAMP studio. One night during one of our many kick it sessions, the instrumental randomly came on. Somewhere between really interesting convos and melodic mumbles, we recorded the vibe. It’s always cool to mark a dope moment in time with people by writing a song.”

Anderson .Paak – Room In Here

“Pure vibes on this one. I saw/heard AP for the first time about 3 years ago at some artist showcase and never forgot him. He was performing and seemed like he was missing a drummer on stage. I wanted to go up and play for him because he was so dope, but then mid-song he went and jumped behind the kit (while rapping/singing) and crushed it! That dude’s incredibly talented.”

DVSN – Try/Effortless

“Well put. I feel like DVSN took the thoughts/words/emotions right out of my head with this song. Props to them for bringing a fresh sound and taste level to the game.”

H.E.R. – Focus

“So mysterious. So vibey. So dope. I just heard about H.E.R. but i’m definitely focused haha.”
