Tuxedo is Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus). They are descendants of the one-word moniker family of funk, where you will find such groups as Chic, Shalamar and Zapp. Tuxedo emerged last year with three tracks of smooth, synth-heavy disco funk accompanied by no information about the group except a greeting, Tuxedo is here! Stay classy. Multi-platinum recording artist Pitbull loved the tracks so much he used one of them on his album Global Warming: Meltdown.The duo is excited to release the upcoming album on Stones Throw Records, which also marks Mayers return to the label since the release of his debut A Strange Arrangement in 2009. The double vinyl LP comes in gatefold sleeve with download code included.
