Your Daily Lick: Sean Christian

Soulfood Stir-Fry (self-released)



The beat may be the basis of all hip-hop, but it rarely takes the spotlight. Sean Christian attempts to right that wrong with this collection of fully fledged beats giving equal room to treble (high hat, claps, synth, even live flute and sax) and a fat, booming bottom end. Oakland's D. Nok, Zumbi of Zion-I, and others lend their voices among a trio of instrumentals.
