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.
