LAKIM – I’m Rick James, Bitch…

Listen to this godly flip of Rick James’ Super Freak by LAKIM. I’m not even gonna waste my time describing how incredible this flip is. I first heard a snippet on Instagram and nearly lost my entire shit. All you need to know is it’s LAKIM, it’s Rick James and it’s sampling at its very best. If you don’t believe us, just ask Questlove: JESUS…

How Did I Miss That: The Robert Digweed Collective – Second Chances (Remix Album)

Turns out some of our favourite producers (LAKIM, Elaquent and Handbook) remixed The Robert Digweed Collective’s First Impressions. Remember we told you about The Robert Digweed Collective and their jazz fusion debut First Impressions? Well, it turns out Robert Digweed commissioned some producers to remix the album which was a brilliant idea. Upon further inspection, we discovered it featured a helluva a lot of artists…

Daft Punk x Panda Bear – Doin’ It Right (LAKIM’s Left Coast G-Mix)

Get yourself a neck brace quick because LAKIM’s Left Coast G-Mix of Daft Punk and Panda Bear’s Doin’ It Right will knock your head clean off your shoulders. Whether you loved or hated Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, the potential for remixes can’t be denied. Of course, that idea lends itself to a million different dubstep edits that nobody wants but you can’t stop that…

Danimal – SUGANDHALAYA: Beat Tape

New Jersey producer Danimal drops a new instrumental beat tape. We don’t know whether the name of an Indian incense company was intentional, but it certainly reminded us of nag champa. Danimal is a producer from New Jersey and having already worked with the likes of Dres of Black Sheep and Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest on their most recent album, he has decided…

Leftover Links #5 – Soundcloud Tracks 2

We have some more Soundcloud tracks for your enjoyment in today’s Leftover Links. Been a while since we last did one of these and in that time, we’ve been sitting on some Soundcloud gems from the likes of Tensei, Brandee Younger, BoomBaptist and Handbook. Turn the radio off and just stream from Soundcloud, I say. Enjoy the music! Tensei – Two EP Brandee Younger ft….

Lakim – The Return

Lakim delivers a dope flip of an already dope Jamiroquai track. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a bad Jamiroquai flip and Lakim hasn’t bucked that trend. Not only has he chosen my favourite Jamiroquai track to switch up, Space Cowboy, he’s given it an even jazzier vibe with some nice drum licks; Jay Kay would be proud. Hell, it’s got me listening to the…

HIP HOP FIND: Lakim – Prima Donnas (Bahwee Remix)

Prepare to be blown away by this Lakim remix of Bahwee’s Prima Donnas. The title might be a slight misnomer; according to the Soundcloud description, Bahwee asked if Lakim would remix one of his tracks from his album, Flavors 2. Lakim accepted and the result is phenomenal. Off beat, banging drums, ladened with smooth pads and a gorgeous bassline. It’s that space funk you’ve always…

KNGTT – GawdsKonnect.

The powers of Lakim, Tuamie and KVZE combine as KNGTT to bring us GawdsKonnect. It’s great when two brilliant producers come together for a collab album but when three join forces, it can be lethal. GawdsKonnect is one of those works and it’s brought to us by the hip hop “gawds” Lakim, Tuamie and KVZE, collectively known as KNGTT. The nine-track EP could easily have…
