Vybz Kartel – Virginity (Skanky Remix)
Now I’m not one to get excited by very young producers. They are usually very arrogant, miss guided, demanding and very unwilling to take constructive criticism (watch out for my post on how to send tracks in the right way lol).
However, Marco Del Horno introduced us to a producer called Skanky at least six months or so ago, and we’re beyond hype that he did. Not only is Louis Johnson just 17, he is also from my home town of North London which gets him extra credits in my book. It’s pretty unheard of for such a young, up and coming producer, to have already established his own sound and persona. Sensual vibes, R&B chopping and skipping bass are firmly established on his producer CV.
You may of heard his track on Dubfluence 5 ‘Blind Spot‘, which is one of our personal favourites from last year. For us at Ego Thieves, we know a producer has a big future ahead of him when its hard to do say that ‘he sounds like’ this or that producer. If you try to do this with Skanky, it usually draws a blank or a vast mash up: A twinge of Jamie XX, a snippet of James Blake and maybe a shake of Roska and Diplo is all we could come up with.
For now, download this Vybz Kartel remix he did and gave away for free over Xmas. Also keep an eye out for the mix, interview and full feature on him real soon. Hit up his Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop.
