The Trp & Michael Tousana, 'YAHUDA': Exclusive LP Premiere

The mysterious trio, The Trp – who prefer to remain anonymous – are gradually garnering buzz for their soundscapes: a fusion of tropical electronic, soul and trippy hip-hop.

The Trp – pronounced The Trip – continue to impress, this time teaming up with Michael "Dos Global" Tousana for their concept EP, "YAHUDA." ("The trio dropped the "I" from "Trip" to symbolize the absence of the ego.)

Check out a stream of the 8-song collaborative LP below, exclusively premiered here on The Juice.

"'Yahuda' itself means praise, and it is also a really strong word, there is a lot of energy behind it. The album is about life moving forward, it's got everything from pain to pleasure. It's very introspective and emotional," Tousana (@DosGlobal) told Interview magazine of the LP.

"The album progresses and has a story arc that follows what we see a lot of people our generation go through. We're definitely a more conscious generation than the last and our aim was to capture that on wax," The Trp (@TheTrpHasNoI) adds.

When's the perfect time to listen to "YAHUDA," you ask? Well, The Trp says "after mind-blowing sex in a cozy dimmed room, warm tea in hand and the smell of burning white sage in the air."
