Four80East – Straight Round

The Toronto-based electro-jazz duo Rob DeBoer and Tony Grace have bundled their creative activities in the formation Four80East. They started with The Album in 1997, followed by Nocturnal (2001), Round Three (2002), En Route (2007), Roll On (2009), Off Duty (2012), Biblotheca (2013), and Positraction (2015). In 2014 they released the album Four80East LIVE and in 2016 a limited vinyl collection Cherry Picked. Their  EP Four On The Floor (2018) is a musical business card inspired by their early days as House producers.

Now they return with Straight Round (2020), the ninth album from groove duo, Four80East. With an eclectic mix of neo-jazz, Straight Round serves up a infectious mix of soul, funk and jazz groovers to follow-up their 2019 Billboard #1 single, Cinco Cinco Seis , from their EP release, Four On The Floor.
