Hinx Jones, the Indiana duo of Lonegevity and Gritts, worked on “Soul Hop” for three years – on and off between other solo endeavors. This being their third album and sixth project as Hinx Jones since 2010, they wanted to do something a little different than their previous projects.
“Soul Hop” has a sound-driven theme, as aside from incorporating a lot more direct focus of intent, with regular singing, it more so than ever promotes specific vibes and thoughts around bettering oneself. The production is a bit more heartfelt than aggressive, with the the idea to mesh soul and hip hop together to form something of a new genre. Think Foreign Exchange’s Connected meets The Roots’ How I Got Over, with their own personal touches added to it.
