Tanya Morgan – How Low audio

“Roll bounce, Roller Skate / B Boys show ’em how you break”

The Song:

Tanya Morgan’s modern “Electric Slide” begs the question “How low can you go?” Like an old school jam playing at the roller rink, it’s hard not to break it down to the dance beat infused synths and rhythms of the new single, “How Low.” Tanya Morgan’s feel-good, infectious singsong hook “Roll bounce, Roller Skate / B Boys show ’em how you break” sets the tone for the most fun song of the summer, bound to snap even the stiffest critics into limbo-like positions. While the beat sounds like an old favorite, Tanya Morgan puts a fresh spin on it with saucy rhymes like “When I roll by wit’ the glow they gotta close they eyes / But they can’t close they thighs” and playful lines like “Pretty biddies wanna be in my committee / if not then it’s a pity” keep you singing along. Warning: suppressing the urge to dance to this beat, and showing the boys of Tanya Morgan just how low you can go may lead to personal injury.

The Background:

In 2003, Brooklyn resident Von Pea teamed up with Cincinnati’s Donwill and Ilyas to form Tanya Morgan. Three years later, the group’s Moonlighting LP took the rap world by storm, receiving a 3.5 mic rating from The Source and high praise in XXL’s Chairman’s Choice column. Donwill describes the group’s uniqueness and appeal: “Instead of jam-packing our releases with different producers and guest emcees for attention, we carefully choose who we work with because we make it a priority to cultivate our own sound and identity. We look to groups like Eric B and Rakim, who honed their own sound and rarely collaborated with other artists.” After a brief hiatus from center stage, the crew is back in 2008 seeking the hip-hop triple crown: the release of a mixtape, EP, and LP, all in the same year. Tonya Morgan has performed with Ghostface Killah and has had videos featured on multiple MTV channels. The Bridge EP is available now on via Bay Area label Interdependent Media.
