When it comes to future funk and electro-soul producer, a respect for the bygone eras of music are inherent and expected. Athens, Georgia's Robbie Dude knows it well. The DJ-turned-producer pens a tribute to Curtis Mayfield, a legend of funk and soul, with his newly minted "Love Like That," an homage to Mayfield's "Strictly Reserved."

Full of vintage pops and crackles, this soulful sampling delves into the groovier side of hip-hop, with some trappy flavors thrown in for fun. This will be part of the new Robbie Dude EP, 4Plays, the four-track collection slated for a spring release. We're excited to hear the new tunes from Dude, with the old-school feel. Peep that artwork from Moon Suk Lee, who crafted Emancipator's art for Seven Seas.
