The early days of hip-hop were decidedly electronic. Then, it was all about the groove as DJs took the genre from house parties to block parties. Maybe that's why we dig this new track, "Hope & Pray," from Neptunes producer Chad Hugo and Baltimore DJ Daniel Biltmore. Known collectively as MSSL CMMND, this track is 1980s electro-funk with ambient vocals.

It's the first single from the duo's debut mixtape, Why Fight The Space Age, out today. Stream "Hope & Pray" below.
