Nick Hakim – QADIR

Qadir reminds me of shitloads of different songs and artists, but is also undeniably original. In this one song alone I can hear Zero 7, BADBADNOTGOOD, Thundercat, even a touch of Marvin Gaye, as well as various others, but somehow it still sounds fresh and unique. The rest of the album, WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD – which came out last week – is a similar vibe, and combined with the sun blasting in from outside is making me feel exceptionally chilled and happy.
