Oíche's 'pick of the week' is yet another product of London's creative community. British-Ghanaian producer, BOADI is tickling our musical tastebuds this week with his soulful tune, "The Feeling". The track displays his talents and knowledge of instrumentation, through the incorporation of brass, synth and bass like only Boadi (and maybe Earth, Wind & Fire😊) know how.
A standout tune from his second EP, "The Feeling" is a fusion of soul, jazz & RnB, lifted by a burst of bouncy afrobeat and just some good vibrations.
Co-produced & wonderfully complemented by Aaron London, the aptly named track is a perfect balance of traditional & modern musical settings. It takes us to a smoky New Orleans jazz bar in the early 1900's while somehow simultaneously launching us forward into a futuristic London cocktail club - and we are more than buzzed to embark on this journey.
Through Boadi's sultry repetition of "floating" & "dreaming", we find ourselves effortlessly afloat silky smooth waves and into to the heavier, and even funkier second half, at which point we turn up the volume and by now have lost ourselves entirely in a musical dream.
