The Rowdee Review: DJ Jazzy Jeff & Ayah “Back For More”

Jazzy Jeff is determined to turn this summer into an inferno. First, he & Mick Boogie dropped the second installment of his Summertime mixtape series, which actually improved on the formula from the first one….and now this, a collaboration with sultry songstress Ayah for the full length banger ‘Back For More’. From the opening track, the Stevie Wonder infused ‘Press Play’ to the mid-tempo burn of ‘Notorious’ and all points beyond and between, this album adds another classic to the Philly neo-soul catalog. Ayah’s crisp and clear vocals blend perfectly with Jeff’s production, and together they deliver repeatedly throughout the whole project. This is the one you’ve been waiting for, a full length release that represents those of us born into hip hop who now dwell in R&B’s neighborhood; think Groove Theory, 20 years later & updated. Pure fiyah, through and through.
