So..maybe it’s just me, but has anyone heard of Lakim Bryant? I discovered Lakim Allah Shewan on my daily stumble through SoundCloud; his music is new, fresh and inspired. Each track is a cosmic journey of sorts, weaving between hip hop, soul, jazz and electronic influences.
Taking Trips was released in November, 2010 and is one the most inspiring records I have heard in recent memory, and is available for free download. Inspired by Madlib, Taking Trips is a regional beat tape featuring Japanese influenced tracks.
Project Mercury and Project Mercury II were also released late last year and utilize texture and layers to create a full, well rounded sound. Hopefully we can expect a 20011 release soon! A full feature and closer look at Lakim Bryant to come soon!!
