New Zealand-born producer T.E.A.O’ hit my email with this one last night/this morning. First off, a huge shoutout to him for coming correct with the submission. He was humble and introduced himself to the point I was like “alright, lemme check this EP out” especially because of my love for dope instrumentals. The L.A.-inspired EP feels dark, sexy, and inspiring all within the same span of tracks.
From sampling Tevin Campbell to giving some pretty tasty “stripper-friendly” vibes, the EP introduces T.E.A.O’ to listeners. This is important since the “City Nights” beat is featured on a collaborative project between Tommy Genesis, Wes Period and Ye Ali called baby.daddi. So, long story short, it may be best to get familiar with this producer’s work. You very well could be hearing it en masse for a while. Check out L.A. Nights below.
