Way before Ayah put y'all on to her homie and frequent collaborator Slakah The Beatchild, I'd been checking hard for dude's music. His debut album, Soul Movement Vol. 1, got an official US release this past May, but I've been rocking to it since last year and it stays in heavy rotation on the ButtaPod. Slakah flexed his production muscle with a who's who of the Toronto Soul and Hip Hop scenes. In case you don't have your copy of this Hip Hop Soul gem then, maybe this brand new freebie is just the encouragement you need to pick it up. Slakah effortlessly flips a sample of Minnie Riperton's "Inside My Love" on "D.A.N.C.E." while holding down all the vocals. Download "D.A.N.C.E." for your own iPod's below, and check out the sampler of Soul Movement, Vol. 1 after the bounce to hear for yourself just how talented this cat is.
