Our friends at Yours Truly enlist San Diego transplant Different Sleep for their latest mix dedicated to the sweet sounds of Chicago. Listen in to the sampler of hip-hop, juke, and R&B from all of our favorite Chi-town artists.
Travis Porter Do a Trick feat. Gucci Mane (Kodak to Graph Boot)
I premiered this dope Kodak to Graph remix on Yours Truly yesterday.
Making lyrics like “Big face hundreds, bout to throw it at her asscheeks” ethereal and calming, Gainsville, FL producer Mike Maleki aka Kodak to Graph pulls a hat trick of his own with his rework of Travis Porter and Gucci Mane’s “Do a Trick.”
Wiping the track’s southern grit sound clean with airy pieces of vocal coo’s and an array of hollow synths, Maleki morphs you into a purple glazed cloud, while still keeping the nostalgia factor (and love for the original track) in tact. It’s my party, I turn up if I want to.
Recently wrapping up a tour with the masters of whimsical wonderment, Braids andHundred Waters, the young producer is back on the live show schtick with a number of shows at SXSW next week, be sure to catch him at one of the events below.
