It may only be Tuesday, but a pick-me-up is more than welcome to keep the week moving at a steady pace. Just in time with what we need is Astro Raw (aka Lucas Goodman) with his solo offering "U R My High." One-half of the duo Lion Babe alongside singer/songwriter Jillian Hervey, it looks like Astro will be delivering more solo singles in his upcoming mixtape rawmix vol 1, which will be released this Thursday.
In the first sample from the mixtape, Astro borrows a little Kendrick Lamar for the single's foundation. The EDM-inspired single features Astro's production expertise, mixing and matching vocals from "Poetic Justice" and house instrumentals for an instant head banger that catches your attention the minute you press play. The chorus features spliced vocals from King Kendrick repeating the chorus, "If you a bad b*tch then put your hands up high."
"U R My High" gets us ready for Astro's 14-track project, which we hear is a mix of R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk and dance. rawmix vol 1 features mixes of tracks from the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Busta Rhymes, Alicia Keys and, of course, Lion Babe with flips of tracks "Treat Me Like Fire" and "Jungle Lady." And if you are hungering for more Lion Babe, don't despair. They have an EP forthcoming, led by the funky track "Rockets" featuring Moe Moks.
