Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei remix Slum Village
You know that warm feeling you get when two people you know separately turn out to be great friends too? Well that is how I felt when I found out that Mahogany favourite Tom Misch and the soulful Jordan Rakei had been working and jamming together.
Not only have they been jamming, but one result has been a reworked, reimagined version of a track from one of my favourite neo-soul hip hop outfits – Slum Village. Rakei and Misch’s version of Get Dis Money keeps that cool Slum Village hip hop beat, but weaves in fresh hi-hat’s, off beat synths and a kicked back, mellow guitar solo. I think their version stands up pretty well against what is essentially a hip hop classic.
