The two Grammy-nominated artists have teamed up to release their debut album Tuxedo (Stones Throw Records) and will visit Amoeba Hollywood for a double DJ set for YOU! Tuxedo is Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus) – they are descendants of the one-word moniker family of funk, where you will find groups such as Chic, Shalamar, Plush & Zapp.
The Tuxedo collaboration began with an exchange of mixtapes back in 2006. The fruits of a long-standing kinship were three tracks that mysteriously showed up on Internet doorsteps nearly two years ago. In between personal projects, these three tracks became a full album’s worth of Tuxedo. The album was mixed by original disco don dada John Morales at his home studio in South Plainfield, New Jersey. “I flew out there,” Mayer says. “He made me spaghetti and everything.”
