Google+ Beathearts: Exist - Lookin' at Blue


Exist - Lookin' at Blue

Soulful beat veterans Karizma (Kris Klayton) and Atjazz (Martin Iveson) put out this beautiful EP a while back. Together they call themselves Exist and all their joint releases have been solid soulful late night house grooves. This however is a special treat. Inspired by Dilla's Walkinonit (off Donuts 2006) they cut the same sample but use it in a completely different context.

The original tune is Walk on by from The undisputed truth (Motown 1973). We can't be certain but the minute plus intro just looping the naked sample feels like a nod to the late Jay Dee. Check both the orginal and Exist's version below.

The Undisputed Truth - Walk on by

The Lookin' at Blue EP is available now via Traxsource.

And as a bonus here's Karizma's dope mixtape for FACT from back in September. It's still some of the best headphone music you can have on the daily commute.
