  Less than a year after their out-of-nowhere debut LP, J-Zone and Pablo
Martin (aka The Du-Rites) return with their sophomore effort, Greasy
Listening. The positive response to their 2016 self-titled offering inspired
the NYC funk duo to become winter-spring studio rats and churn out 13
new tracks that both pick up where the initial offering left off and explore
previously uncharted territory.
J-Zone (drums, organ, percussion, turntables) continues to deliver funky
rhythms and chunky drum sounds, while Pablo (guitar, bass, synthesizer,
electric piano) returns with plenty greasy guitar moves and addictive
melodies. But where Greasy Listening differs from its predecessor is in
its composition and theme.
Where their almost entirely instrumental debut often built upon jams
and vamps, the tunes on Greasy Listening are composed and arranged
with more attention to detail, feature some vocal narrations and rely less
on soloing. Undermanned as a duo, the J-Zone and Pablo realize they
would they need to tighten up the areas beyond their main instruments
(drums and guitar, respectively) to prevent rehashing their debut. These
limitations birthed raw (but charming) organ solos, electric piano riffs,
greasy bass solos and commentary, all of which were almost absent on
the frst LP. This go round is also an opportunity to be tongue-in-cheek
about being forced to multi-track everything as a two-man band. Greasy
Listening is a “live” concert staged at a fctitious hole-in-the-wall chitlin
circuit venue fttingly dubbed: The Collard Green Lounge.
The aforementioned limitations have aided The Du-Rites in creating their
own sound, which nods to both Pablo’s tenure as guitarist in new wave
band, Tom Tom Club, and J-Zone’s former path as a hip-hop producer/
artist, but somehow remains its own entity.
Welcome to the Collard Green Lounge for some nasty, dripping bacon fat
Greasy Listening with The Du-Rites. Don’t tell your doctor you were here.
