Real Love / Smoke Em If You Got Em

by John Dole

Real Love 03:56


John Dole's eclectic sound is a blend of old school sample based Hip-Hop and modern electronic production. Heavily influenced by RJD2, Aesop Rock and Outkast as well as the social commentary of The Streets intertwined with smooth soulful vibes drawn from D'Angelo. Juxtaposing off-kilter beats, smooth instrumentals and funky synths, John Dole is an authentic voice within North Eastern Hip-Hop. An accomplished percussionist and guitarist, performing in various Hardcore and Math bands before finding his niche within the Hip-Hop and Electronic scene. His love of music began early in his life, while digging through his parents CD and vinyl collection as a child; he became fascinated that these discs held sounds.

John Dole is signed to Newcastle based Kaneda Records and performs live with Producer Callum Isaac Haze accompanied by a live band.
