Something Forever - Special Edition
This is the Special Edition CD of Slakah The Beatchild’s “Something Forever” that was released recently in digital format on BBE. Because of the extraordinary high demand, Slakah and BBE decided to release a very special CD that comes with four brand new bonus tracks.
In Slakah’s own words “Something Forever” is “the theme that is forever at the forefront of my mind when I create music. We can easily identify music that has that indescribable timeless vibe, music that regardless of the time period in which it was created sounds refreshing and relevant when played.”
“When the Night Stood Still” : A warm summer night can evoke a variety of conflicting yet unifying emotions, Slakah’s love for the starry sky above inspired this piece which takes you on a relaxing journey through the night as it stands still.
“Something Forever”: This piece is based around an entrancing chord progression that could go on and on, hence the title.
“Living for the Rush”: We all have our own ways of escaping and feeling a rush, what ever ones rush is this, piece represents the sound track to the feeling of being in that moment.
“The Things I Do (For Her)”: When you’re passionate about someone or in this case something, that love may drive you to do things you would never imagine…
“Down”: A cool groove to make your body rock and forget about the stress of the work week.
“B-Boy Beef V2”: Version 2 to the original version found on critically acclaimed Soul Movement vol.1.
“Illusions”: What your heart feels could often conflict with what your mind feels.
“This Beautiful Feeling”: This song featuring Ebrahim is a reminder for us all to never take “Time” for granted. We can find joy in even bad moments.
“The Cure”: We’ve all had that one person in our life who like a prescribed drug made everything better in our life. But like any drug, you can get addicted to what makes you feel good.
“D.A.N.C.E.”: Timeless vibes, memories in the making in the company of great friends or the soul synchronization of a stranger, the positive energy exchanged between people when celebrating life, is at the root of what inspired this song.
“War Within”: Collaboration with Swedish soul artist Magnus Tingsek & Canadian artist Ebrahim. War Within was written and recorded while the two were in Toronto for Slakah the Beatchild’s Vibe Love Smile Tour. This song relates to the inner wars one goes through when battling addiction.
The music video of “B-Boy Beef” made its official debut with adds on MuchMusic, PunchMuch, MuchCountdown, MuchMoreMusic, MuchMoreCountdown, MuchLoud, MTV2, MuchVibe and MuchMusic.com.
Director Marc Andre Debruyne (videodirector.ca) of The NE Inc. (www.thene.ca) brought the unique concept of “B-Boy Beef” to life by embodying the line in the song which declares: “we came here to have a good time, B-Boy Beef ain’t on our minds”. Set in a club in the late 1970’s with B-Boys dressed in button-downs and neckties, and cameos from Canadian R&B talents Divine Brown, Melanie Durrant and Maya Chilton, B-boying is highlighted like never seen before with a phenomenal dance scene featuring B-Boys and B-Girls from crews Ground Illusions and Twisted Ankles. Even Slakah the Beatchild himself gets in on the b-boying action with an incredible move that has to be seen to be believed!
