About a month ago C. Shreve THE Professor teased us with his single titled “Mommy Love To Dance.” Following that, the wordsmith released a seven track EP with the same title.
Shreve states: “I’ve done enough shows to know what makes it all work. Without the folks that come up front and dance, a live show just doesn’t work. Mommy Love To Dance is a reflection of me trying to figure out what people would most want to dance to. It led to me choosing some beats that I might not have otherwise.”
The production on the EP uses a combination of upbeat tempos (enough to get you up and moving) but also soothing enough to kick back and decompress too (i.e. tracks like “All Around,” “Circle,” and “Fly Take Off” – which is kind of reminiscent of old school Wiz Khalifa). Pretty impressive to achieve both styles in the same context. That was the goal for Shreve and his team. It’s not your traditional dance EP by any means, but it takes a different and unique approach and you have to be able to appreciate that.
This project will be followed quickly by Shreve’s next project “Daddy Love To Rap,” which finds him creating an album based purely on choosing the beats that he wanted to rap on, and then doing just that. DLTR will be released in October. Listen to the full EP below.
