2022 release. French vocalist, beatboxer, songwriter and producer Sly Johnson unveils 55.4, his much-anticipated fourth studio album, released on BBE Music. Hailing from Paris, Sylvère Johnson (Sly Johnson) is a major force on the French Hip-Hop, Soul and Jazz scenes, both as a solo artist and as a member of super-group Saian Supa Crew for over a decade, where he was known by the moniker Sly The Mic Buddah. Written and recorded during the first COVID lockdowns between March and May 2020, Sly Johnson's fourth album blends Soul and Hip Hop, twinning vocal arrangements reminiscent of Prince and D'Angelo with loose, supple, beats and jazzy chords. Most of the musical heavy lifting is done by Johnson himself, but the album features bass by Laurent Salzard, guitar by Ralph Lavital and Anthony Jambon, keys by Nicholas Vella & Laurent Coulondre and a spellbinding guest vocal by Jona Oak.
