Ganiyu TLG (prod. by Plant Food)
Info: Track '5&6' is a collaboration between Athy indie / hip-hop song-writer Ganiyu TLG and Dublin producer Plant Food (Jamie Baker). The sound could be described as an experimentation between a number of genres including grime and electronic music. Skillfully forming a collage of orgasmic sounds, Plant Food samples 'My Baby Shot Me Down' by Nancy Sinatra which brings another aspect of musicality into the sounds spectrum of 5&6.
Like a mix of SBTRKT, Jamie XX and Mount Kimbie rolled all into one, '5&6' is beautifully produced and executes its intended lush, chilled-out vibe with ease. Whilst hip-hop and electronic music are currently flourishing in Ireland, it's great to see this amalgamation of both genres, which has been prevalent in the U.K. for quite some time now, surfacing locally, a side of experimental hip-hop in particular which hasn't had many acts dipping their toes into yet, but boy is this a stellar start from Ganiyu TLG and Plant Food, top marks all round.
(Honourable mention to Keian for sharing, thank you).
