DJ Dahi Brings Kali Uchis' "Ridin' Round" To The Islands w/ A Swaggering Rework
It wasn’t too long ago that the world was formally introduced to the whispery lilt of Virginia via Columbia songstress, Kali Uchis. Her debut EP Por Vida, released in mid-spring this year, wrangled the likes of Tyler The Creator, Kaytranada, BADBADNOTGOOD, Bunx, Alex Epton and Caleb Stone to provide the sultry sonic suite for Uchis to lay down lead-heavy melodies and hooks.
In the time since, she’s shared several cerebral clips in support of the record, even guest-starred in Tyler’s “BUFFALO” video. Today, she returns with a new look on an old groove from mastermind producer DJ Dahi, whose credits cover cherished cuts from new-school titans of hip-hop like Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Big Sean, as well as recent outings with Madonna, Dr. Dre and Lupe Fiasco.
Dahi tries his hand with the Por Vida cut “Ridin’ Round,” injecting it with a swaggering, island-vibe-soaked dose of twisted organs and skanking guitar strums; a perfect way to warm-up now that the mercury’s starting to settle. Stream DJ Dahi’s full-strut rework of Kali Uchis’ “Ridin’ Round” below and jump back to hear the original.
