Karriem Riggins Drops the Beautifully Crafted ‘Bahia Dreamin’ on Stones Throw [LISTEN]
If you're still trying to de-stress from this last presidential race, you can do so my rocking to drummer and producer's Karriem Riggins' new single "Bahia Dreamin,'" released today (Nov. 16) on Stones Throw.
For those not familiar with the Detroit native, he dropped his debut LP Alone Together in 2012 and has also worked with a who's-who list of rappers and soul singers, including Talib Kweli, Kanye West, J Dilla, Erykah Badu and Dwele just to name a few. He also worked heavily on Common's Black America Again album and gave it much of its soulful sound.
As far as "Bahia Dreamin,'" it opens up with a catchy xylophone riff, which bleeds smoothly into a sing-songy and soothing vocal loop. Plus, the track is brilliantly layered and contains some gorgeous changes that'll keep the listener on their toes.
Reportedly, Riggins will be dropping a new album sometime in 2017, but for now you can listen to his laid back and very dope single below.
