Fresh Fish: Cheeks – The Wiz

14 12 2010

Charles Cheeks, of Ann Arbor’s Tree City, released this new single yesterday off his upcoming debut solo project, The Potential EP.  With such a creative title, one may be surprised to find out that the featured sample is in fact from Michael Jackson’s The Wiz, one of Motown’s greatest films.  But all sarcasm aside, this track is pretty damn hot.  Cheeks, like the rest of Tree City, has always shown a heightened propensity for lyrical dexterity, and “The Wiz” follows nicely in suit.  The synths, samples and breaks bring a crisp, fresh, uplifting feeling to the beat, kicking it up to the next level.  What’s the theory of freshness?  Welcome to The Wiz.
