"Attention college event planning committee members: if you haven’t already held your campus’s Spring Fling Concert, what the blood clot are you waiting for? School has been out for weeks! Secondly, you need to book Hyphen-One & Daylow, quick, fast, in a hurry. The organic jazz-funk grooves and playful melodies displayed on their full-length debut, Ill Regular would make the perfect soundtrack to your marijuana fueled day of outdoor revelry."-Jeff Harvey - Okayplayer


“…Daylow transcends all genres to bring you their breed of hip hop… Daylow produces a sound with elements of jazz, rock and reggae thanks to an eight piece band… On “Ill Regular” the band gives a funky, solid performance that is reminiscent of early G-Love… Daylow is a refreshing break from the standard drum machine tracks that are standard today.” - Clive Rubin
