Vancouver duo Potatohead People (Nick Wisdom and Astrological) have released their highly anticipated sophomore LP Nick & Astro’s Guide To The Galaxy, and it sounds amazing! The album serves up 12 tracks with collaborations including J Dilla’s brother Illa J, K-Maxx, Nanna B, Kapok, Moka Only, and Trian Kayhatu.

With a signature sound that can be described as a J Dilla-esque hip-hop / future electronic feel, the new album hear’s Potatohead delve in a myriad of genres including classic funk on Kayhatu collaboration track “Returning The Flavour,” ultra-smooth R&B on Nanna B’s “Morning Sun” and “Change Of Heart” featuring Illa J. “Liftin’ Up” featuring San Francisco’s K-Maxx ventures into West Coast boogie territories, while the album’s closer, “Rituals,” goes for a deeper more atmospheric electronic vibe. Seamlessly moving between downtempo rhythms, ambient sound, analog synth, organic instrumentation, and more, Potatohead People’s long awaited return on Nick & Astro’s Guide To The Galaxy ushers in an exciting and forward thinking new chapter in the duo’s evolving discography.

Some of our favorite tracks are Morning Sun feat. Nanna B, Quest For Love, Talking With Gawd, No Sleep Til MTL, and
Liftin’ Up feat. K-Maxx.
