Lakim - Soulection White Label: 001

This Friday Soulection announced their new White Label Series, a modern, Soundcloud focused take on what used to be industry DJ’s exclusive hand on your average record buyer. Though the novelty of distributing a “white label” release may be lost on some listeners, the concept is complimentary to Soulection’s larger mission of getting the word out about new and yet to be exposed artists. Perhaps, more importantly, the series is a unique extension of respect to their dedicated followers. Who wouldn’t be stoked about not-quite-“official” releases from one of their favorite websites or labels? The blogosphere, music obsessives, and DJ’s alike will all surely appreciate Soulection‘s delivery of surplus of tunes without superfluous noise.

The stated mission is to focus on EP’s of material from artist’s the label believe to be creating the “Sound of Tomorrow”. The first White Label Release features Lakim, a talented producer from (apparently) Virginia who specializes in edgy, ableton-ish Hip Hop and R&B remixes. However, his original compositions shine on this EP where he polishes some throw-back vibes with a new-east cost sheen. The product is slow, sensual, serene and occasionally dance floor available. For Lakim and Soulection both, White Label Release 001 appears to be an auspicious start to a new venture.
