Album Review

Even if the Toronto-based producer/singer Slakah the Beatchild does little that people like Dwele and Jay Dee haven't done before, it's all in the execution. His debut album, Soul Movement, Vol. 1, is a warm, positive, forward-thinking, and often dreamy effort, prime for slinking around a tasteful loft or for chilling out without coming down. The old-school spirit is all over the album with the key track, "Enjoy Ya Self," dropping a steady stream of throwback references while "B-Boy Beef" declares "all my people lace up" before turning the story of an attention hogging breakdancer into a parable that illustrates how to win with humility. Friends like Ayah and Drake help Slakah with the vocals, and for every song that makes a pro-human, pro-unity statement, there's an acceptably empty set of lyrics designed to be elegant and tasteful background music. The hodge-podge called "Some Beats" could be source material for a number of underground hip-hop hits, but its odd placement three-quarters of the way through speaks to the album's biggest problem. Soul Movement, Vol. 1 comes off as Slakah's high grade vault simply turned over, so take the title to heart and approach as an attractive sampler of the neo-soul man's work, rather than a definitive, carefully constructed album.

Enjoy ya self

Seriously this is needed in my life. There AINT nothing like hip hop. It's all good. Really though there are very few things that I dont like about Slakah. Having been introduced to his music shortly before the album dropped in Canada, I have been going crazy waiting for it, But now that I actually have it I find myself craving for more and more. Soul Movement Vol. 1 has an old school vibe that hits a soft spot in my chest and has many Calabos with other Torontonians. In the end, all you have to do is Enjoy ya self, and buy an album, or two....or five. haha

Canada has soul!

From the time I first heard "Enjoy Yourself", I've been waiting for this album to hit itunes. Soul Movement Vol 1 makes me proud to be a canadian cause Slakah and all of the artists on the album are the truth. What an amazing producer and soul creator. I bump this album pretty much everyday. It sets my "vibe" for the day. A must have!! stand up!!!

Only One Word Comes To Mind ....

DOPE! This is music. This is creativity. This is a Soul Movement. Toronto STAND UP!


Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Bridging the underground hip-hop sound of J Dilla and Pete Rock with the neo-soul of artists like Dwele and Raphael Saadiq, Toronto-based producer/singer Slakah the Beatchild first appeared around 2007, producing Canadian R&B and hip-hop artists like Arabesque, Ayah, and G. Stokes. Entering the business through audio engineering, Slakah earned respect with his hard work ethic, gaining the trust of artists along the way. Suggesting a lyric here and there at first led to his becoming a songwriter,...
