LIKE might be better known as 1/3 of PAC DIV or through his recent productions for people like Kendrick lamar, Anderson .paak, or Curren$y.
His own record Songs Made While High sounds exactly as expected.
For example, Kiwi, Strawberry & Mango sounds like muffled beats in a blender moving in slow motion.
“The reason I titled this album ‘Songs Made While High’ wasn’t because I’m a pseudo-druggy (I only smoke weed and occasionally take shrooms). As cliche as it may sound, music gets me high. I’m addicted to sounds and melodies, Chords and samples- colors and soundscapes my brother and I heard growing up in church; or cleaning our parents home Saturday mornings (mom always played Sade and Anita baker). My dad always played and sang beautiful songs on his upright piano.
I want to thank everyone who played a hand in developing this project with me, it’s my first & hopefully not my last.”
The collection of trippy tracks includes one featuring Anderson .Paak and another Kali Ulis.
Locally, the vinyl is available at Choice Cuts Goods for SG$36.
Jakarta Records is a Berlin-based record company that’s released music by Ta-ku, Kaytranada, IAMNOBODI, Umse, Mura Masa and more.
