It was worth having all the patience of a saint – the “Good Life” is now. Even though “Waiting For The Good Life”, which came out in july in usual quality with appreciable guest-appearances, was a quite pleasurable way to get over the torrid period of plain waiting, it did throve up the curiosity towards the third full length player of the Cologne-based producer-doppel JR & PH7. If you take an object look at the carrier of the duo, you can definitely comprehend why the album-title is dedicated to a satisfied life- optimism. Ever since both Evidence and Mayer Hawthorne have praised the two gentlemen to high heaven and they can glue sidekicks like Elzhi, Oddisee and Sean Price into their feature-Panini book, you ask yourself what kind of lifestyle-upgrade JR & PH7 still have in mind – and then there is “The Good Life”. â€žThe Good Life” ist a perfectly round album with an omnipresent atmosphere and a wonderful balance of timelessness and modernity. The classic boom bap manifest has been iterprepreted a bit more freely then in the past without giving up the exeptional quality when it comes to picking the guests for this album. Freeway, Sean Price, Phonte, Guilty Simpson, Saigon and many more compliment the german beatsmith productions symbiotically fitting.
