Song of the Day: Bahamadia “Uknowhowwedu”

Bahamadia’s album Kollage was a favorite of mine back in college. During a recent trip to Som Records I came across a copy of the LP and was reminded of what a killer boom bap record this is.

impossibly smooth and deep delivery

Bahamadia’s delivery is unique; impossibly smooth and deep, it occupies a space in the register that blends into the track rather then riding above it. Combined with production from Premier, Guru, and the Roots when they were all near the height of their creativity, this album has few tracks that I skip. Still a few tracks really stand out, and one of my favorites is “Uknowhowwedu.”
