Slakah the BeatChild
What do you get when you mix the flavor of Raphael Saadiq with the musical genius of J-dilla, then throw it in a pot and season it with a little Stevie Wonder & Quincy Jones? A glimps into the soulful fresh style & sounds of Slakah the Beatchild. The rest cannot be described in words, only through sound. Raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, Slakah the Beatchild relied on a modest collection of vinyl handed down to him by his parents to satisfy and fuel his musical curiosity. At the age of 10 his mother was tired of little Slakah banging on her pots and pans as drums & enrolled him drum lessons and later piano & vocal. This laid a strong foundation for his ability to understand music theory. After several years of sleepless nights in the studio mastering his craft, he started to become know first in Toronto and shortly after in Europe. His first international release entitled Soul Movement vol. 1 on BBE records showcases Slakahs skills as a producer, artists & writer. The project features tracks with music companions such as Divine Brown, Drake, Shad.k, Ayah & more. Soul Movement vol.1 has quickly won the praise and respect of a wide variety of music lovers around the world, leaving them in high anticipation for more.
