The first taste of Nico Segal a.k.a. Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment’s upcoming Surf project is finally here. “Sunday Candy” may be billed as Donnie’s, but the entire Social Experiment familia is present on the record which also features vocals from songstress Jamila Woods.

“Sunday Candy” comes to us via Fader, who also caught up with Donnie Trumpet to talk about the record and the process behind crafting it. Peep an except below:

“This song specifically is a great representation of [The Social Experiment’s] collaborative efforts,” Segal explained. “It’s my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas.”

Get your “Sunday Candy” below and look for Surf to impact soon.

Last night, at an undisclosed location, two of Chicago’s titans got together to record some new music. Yes, Chance The Rapper and King Louie were in the lab together, but what they were working on remains a mystery. Could they be working on the new Social Experiment project, Surf, or perhaps something from Louie’s Drilluminati 3 — both of which are due out later this year.

They do have one collabo in the can, the remix for King Louie’s “Time” (the original version was on Jeep Music), that was never released. But this appears to be something new. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available to us. Looking forward to hearing the outcome, nevertheless.
