Seattle & Detroit link again as Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One drop a sequel with ‘Tuxedo II’.

Tuxedo II, the funky soul offering from duo Jake One & Mayer Hawthorne is out now. Everyone should rejoice at this. Because Tuxedo and the first Tuxedo album gave away so many bops and grooves that it stayed in constant rotation. It’s their third out following 2013’s Tuxedo EP and the second go round album wise is just as good.

A crafted mix of funk and disco influences, the 11-track album has been released in pieces over the course of 2017. Snoop Dogg’s adlibs from “Fux With The Tux” arrive here, same for “2nd Time Around”, “Special” and “July”. In case you wanted to know where Jake & Mayer’s heads were in regards to creating Tuxedo II, they shared a 25-track mix Intuxication featuring Chic, Gladys Knight, George Clinton & more.

Suit up and prepare to hit the dance floor now. Purchase the album on Bandcamp as well as on iTunes.
