Tallahasssee, FL natives; After The Smoke have been creating interest all over the web since the release of their funky, catchy and surprisingly addictive EP; White Girls & Red Velvet Cake. Their sound can most easily be described as Hip-Hop with a 'Weeknd' male R&B influence. After hearing 'Typical Weekend' (the opening track to their EP) the duo come across as light hearted, well produced Hip-Hop with a style that could be compared to Outkast. But then as the EP progresses, more is revealed about this elusive group. 'One In A Million', the second track to the EP, immediately changes up the pace with a dreamy melody and chorus alike which is where you start to recognise what I meant by that 'weekend' male R&B influence. It means the difference between, anothergoodhiphopduo and Ooo this is some new interesting shit. After hearing the whole project it becomes obvious that Whuzi and Speek; After The Smoke belong to a new wave of musicians.
