[Music Video] The Slakadeliqs feat. Justin Nozuka – Keep Breathing from The Other Side of Tomorrow

This is pretty much the only album, besides Common’s, that I have played on repeat since end of last year. I was a major fan of Slakah‘s two projects last year, Art of Fresh‘s When the Night… and his solo Something Forever album and (probably unrealistically in hindsight) lobbied hard for both to make the Polaris Music Prize long list because I think the dude’s a genius and an under-appreciated treasure here in Toronto.

Both of those albums were amazing, beautifully-produced, cohesive, quality works. Now this Slakadeliqs album shows they were no fluke either. Other Side of Tomorrow is as good a piece of music as anything coming out of London, Philly, Detroit, LA or any other scenes that are known for their progressive beat-oriented, urban music sounds. Soul, pop and psychedelia all mixed up in a beautiful stew. This is worth everyone’s time. Check it out:
