Do not adjust your headphones. This isn’t an unreleased B‑side by Thundercat or Dam-Funk. ‘Ride’ is the debut single by Samo Songs, a musician from Nigeria, currently based in Coventry, UK.
Produced by Z.Will and featuring vocals by Sayo, it’s a dope mixture of Barry White-esque piano chords, wonky funk and laidback vocals for doing your thing, even if your homegirl/boy and rest the world refuse to roll with you.
Give it a listen below.
If you’re partial to the MF Doom productions, or the work of Thundercat and Dam-Funk, keep a close eye on this cat.
