This jam has many of my favorite things all in one vid:
– fly kicks
– a fly honey with a sweet voice (hey, Melanie Durrant!)
– dancefloor flavor
– a sweet, jazzy disco break
I first got hip to Art of Fresh producer Slakah the Beatchild when I was checking out what was going on in the Toronto hip-hop and soul scenes. He worked closely with Drake, whom as we all know went on to dominate the popular hip-hop world.
Slakah still keeps it soulful though, releasing his own solo material as well as a brand new second album with Art of Fresh partner D.O.. That would be the basketball playing fellow in the “Good Shoes” video.
Check the visuals for this infectious song and then download the whole album for free.
