I finally had the chance to listen to the album as a whole on the long ass 42 bus journey yesterday and Coin Locker Kid stands out well in the pack of artists making up Quakers, not least because he features on 3 tracks on the LP. And this is on some 7/8 business, which as my high school music teacher will tell you, I do not understand.
Blurb from Stones Throw:
Quakers featuring Coin Locker Kid. The clip was shot by CLK & a friend on a digi stills camera, edited laptop style.
“Quakers is a 35-member hip-hop collective centered on a core trio of producers – 7-Stu-7, Katalyst and Fuzzface, who is better known as Geoff Barrow of Portishead. “Russia With Love,” a new track featuring Coin Locker Kid, was produced by Katalyst. “When I made this beat, I knew who to send it to,” the producer tells Rolling Stone. “The track is in 7/8 and seemed like it might be a bit of a challenge, but Coin Locker Kid came up with the goods the first time round.” Quakers’ self-titled debut album is in stores now, but you candownload “Russia With Love” for free here.”
