Made With Tracklib

Tracklib Roundup January

Old school legends, Latin flavors, Philly Groove, and psych-funk. Discover five diverse highlights of music made with—and cleared through—Tracklib.

By

Deejay Victorious - Shotgun (ft. El Da Sensei, Sadat X, Edo G. & Pawz One)

There's a soul revival going on outside no man is safe from. Deejay Victorious enlisted fellow L.A. artist Pawz One and old school heavy-hitters El Da Sensei (of Artifacts), Sadat X (of Brand Nubian) and Edo G. for “Shotgun,” co-produced by John Henry. A sample of DeRobert & The Half-Truths’ “Finger Tips” from G.E.D. Soul Records combined with smooth vocals, make this an incredibly soulful collab.

Curtiss King, MURS & Dee-1 - No Pictures of Jesus

Sampled by Kanye West and praised by the likes of Beastie Boys & Peanut Butter Wolf. A sample of psych-funk band Black Merda is at the core of “No Pictures of Jesus”, a thoughtful song by producer Curtiss King and emcees MURS & Dee-1. “When I first heard ‘I Don’t Want To Die’ I got goosebumps so intense that it made me tear up,” Curtiss King told us a week before the release.

Tommy Royale - Meri Crima (produced by Cardecdrums)

Wait for it… “Meri Crima” starts as a salsa track by way of the sample of 60s ‘salsa brava duo’ Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz. But the Cardecdrums-produced song quickly shifts to Latin vibes by Puerto Rico-born artist Tommy Royale. With tons of streams and a recently finished tour together with WHATUPRG, listeners are bound to hear more from Tommy Royale—also far beyond crima.

Sidewalk Chalk - Make Room

Chicago-based band Sidewalk Chalk draws inspiration from hip-hop, soul, and jazz. No wonder a 1975 soul song by one-hit singer Charlene P.M. ended up being sampled for “Make Room.” The uplifting track is their first official single since 2017’s An Orchid Is Born LP.

Hevve & Sondrey - One Night in Dreamland

Norwegian R&B/soul artist Sondrey and Ottawa native rapper Hevve managed to turn a sugarsweet Philly Groove recording into a fitting sample for their insomniac song, “One Night in Dreamland.” The track takes the listener on a moody tale of waiting on The Sandman to arrive.
