Tracklib Roundup August

By Tracklib

JIM OUMA - Kids (ft. Alicai Harley & Dear Sara)

Swedish production duo JIM OUMA (Astma & Rocwell) turns a two-second loop of Indian singer and film director M G Sreekumar into the main ingredient of a catchy pop chorus. They teamed up with Kingston-born, London-based singer/rapper Alicai Harley and Swedish singer Dear Sara for “Kids,” a self-described “post-summer anthem.”

B.Slade - Tuesday Afternoon (ft. Kimmé, Big Al & Amber Sauer)

On top of producing tracks for the likes of Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown & Chaka Khan the last few years, producer B.Slade just released another solo EP: Astray In Tokyo. For the track “Tuesday Afternoon” he flipped a sample from the iconic library music archives of Cavendish Music: drums and horns by Geoff Bastow, who is also known for working with disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder and making Italo disco under the moniker of K.I.D.

Galimatias - Everywhere

Denmark-raised, Los Angeles-based producer Galimatias found the right fit for his music on the soulful side of Tracklib. The smooth interlude-like track “Everywhere” off his new album Renaissance Boy samples Norman Feels, the soul singer previously sampled by No I.D., Ghostface Killah, Schoolboy Q, 88-Keys & others.

Cypher Clique - Red Eye (ft. Left Lane Didon)

Dover, Delaware natives Cypher Clique (Mic Anthony, Relay & James Major) built “Red Eye” around a nu-jazz sample from the archives of Chesky Records. The smoothness by award-winning composer Didier Lean Rachou served its purpose for the most laid-back track off their new album, Things Went Left.

Akshin Alizadeh - H.P.N.S.

Interesting use of a high-pitched vocal sample of Roy C Hammond, the spiritual father of The Honey Drippers (of the legendary “Impeach The President” break). Violin player and pianist Akshin Alizadeh blends in a vocal taken from “Show Me The Way (Somebody Show Me The Way To Happiness)” for a funky and versatile track called “H.P.N.S.”
