https://soundcloud.com/LAKIM is releasing his first full-length album, ‘This Is Her’, February 25, 2014.
See the premiere of the “Thinkin’ Bout (Doin’ U)” over on Pigeons and Planes: http://pigeonsandplanes.com/2014/02/premiere-lakim-thinkin-bout-doin/
Multi-genre producer born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia whose personal motto reads: “keep it simple”, delivers the second track from his forthcoming debut album.
Well known for his EP ‘Esoteric’, which dropped in summer 2012, the twentysomething has collaborations with rising artists like Sango and Mr. Carmack as well as various remixes of premium talent such as Erykah Badu, Kanye West, and Frank Ocean. With his style ranging from electronic chillwaved dance to spacey yet refined hip-hop LAKIM has a unique sound that seamlessly and effortlessly combines the perfect amount of bass, bounce and vocals, making ‘This Is Her’ palatable to many.
The album has an overwhelming feminine vibe to it – light and airy, soft and beautiful. As LAKIM draws the soundscape for this project from some inspiring ladies in his life, the sounds come through as traits: calm & collected, sexy & sassy, grounded & driven, loving & unconditional.
“During the course of the year I probably spent making this, I met three woman that embodied some of these traits 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
