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.

Genius pure genius... im from the school of tribe called quest, the pharcyde, slum village, souls of mischief, de la, black moon, fugees, the roots, j dilla, black milk, mos def... this album right here... is the business, the breaks reminded me of Pete Rock and CL where some of the breaks actually made the album love it love it love it, thank you for bringing rap back to where it use to be (quality)

Amazing Sounds

I was fortunate enough to attend the CD release party and Slakah truly is a musical genius! He combines so many different hip hop and R&B styles across the spectrum, but fuses it together so well with expert lyrics and melodies. This is a must have album that needs more people to discover and appreciate...
