Following the success of their Uptown Funk debut, Sly5thAve & The
Clubcasa Chamber Orchestra return with another piece of instant
vintage collectors vinyl! This time, Sly5thAve, the composer, arranger
and producer is found re-working classics from Kendrick Lamar and
Major Lazer on Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe and Get Free, respectively.
Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe, the cult anthem from Kendrick’s debut
Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, gets a full on, blown-out, orchestral horns
re-vamp, sending Lamar’s original verses and melodies soaring
through Sly’s brass and woodwinds. This gorgeous composition
has already smashed the internet with thousands of soundcloud
plays and received burn from SOULECTION DJs, amongst other
tastemakers worldwide. Now, hear it for the first time mastered and
pressed on high quality vinyl!
Get Free, the ambient soul/reggae number from Diplo and crew,
receives a floor stomping re-rub, complete with skanking horns to do
the job of the roots reggae guitars. The feeling this tune gives us is
victorious and by the looks of the live version receiving reposts from
Major Lazer, we think our intuitions are right. This is the unreleased
The thing that amazes us about Sly is that he effortlessly puts his
own flavors into these covers, often giving them a new identity and
life of their own, which some would argue top the original tunes that
he’s paying homage to. We couldn’t agree more.
