Album: This Is Her
Released: February 25, 2014
Virginia-based multi-genre producer Lakim has released his first full-length album, ‘This Is Her’. The Soulection member is perhaps well known for his EP Esoteric, which dropped in summer 2012, and his collaborations with other artists like Sango and Mr. Carmack as well as various remixes of premium artists such as Erykah Badu, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean. Lakim’s sound ranges from electronic chillwaved dance to spacey future bass yet refined hip-hop. According to Lakim, the album has a very feminine vibe to it, as he drew inspiration for the project from the ladies he has encountered in his life.
“During the course of the year I probably spent making this, I met three woman that embodied some of these traits (calm & collected, sexy & sassy, grounded & driven, loving & unconditional) but not all of them. So, this is essentially me taking the best bits from each of them and creating in my mind a Bride of Franksteinesque ladyfriend and putting it into song form, lol…” – Lakim
Some of our personal favorite jawns are “Need Want”, “The Abyss” (Feat. High-Klassified), “Superb”, “Tantric”, and “White Gold”.
