John Talabot's Hivern Discs imprint has announced that it will release a four-track EP from New York/Oslo pair Michael & Mattis next month. Set to drop on December 9, Hoes Before Bros offers three original cuts from the pair—described in the record's press release as "blend[ing] elements of muffled hip-hop, soulful house, and slick disco"—as well as a remix from Swedish outfit Genius of Time, who recently collaborated with John Talabot for a track on his excellent new DJ-Kicks mix. Before Michael & Mattis' debut for Hivern drops in the coming weeks (vinyl is out on December 9, the digital package will follow two weeks later), a stream of the Tribe Called Quest-sampling title track (which also features one Chris Hess) can be streamed below, where the EP's complete tracklist is also included.
