South East London collective Midas Touch (AKS, J The Exodus and Phoenix Da Icefire) present ‘Special Vibe’, a smooth, classic-sounding track produced by Blackmale. The predominantly string-driven beat has a clear ‘back to basics’, golden age influence, which is complemented perfectly by the stripped back visuals.

The great thing about this track is the way in which manages to carry the unmistakeable stamp of UK Hip Hop and still have that soulful, timeless vibe that we all associate with the Golden Age of US Hip Hop. All three MCs have a really assured, relaxed flow, and AKS in particular raps with a cadence that sits perfectly over Blackmale’s almost regal-sounding beat.

The track is available for free download at lessismoremusic.co.uk/specialvibe.
