Summertime is in full swing and Kokayi’s got a track for that. “Summery” is the anthem for a season of sweaty car seats, coochie-cutters, sun-tan lotion and Ultra-sized Slurpee runs to 7-11. Previoiusly, this track was a vinyl-only release on the B-side of the “RoxTar” 7” single that came with all pre-ordered Paleo-Packs of Koke’s CRIMINALLY slept-on 2010 album, Robots & Dinosaurs.
The joint kicks off with a “WOO!” which is the appropriate reaction to stepping outside on a warm day. “I wanted to try and capture that sunny feeling; I wanted people to pump this as they drove with the big 18’s in the trunk, so the bass knocks,” says Kokayi, citing The Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff’s “Summertime” and the general feeling of the coming season as main inspirations for the song. Kokayi also brought on Baltimore MC and fellow QN5 label mate Substantial and soulful songstress Tamara Wellons to complete the funky, carefree production. “Substantial is the homie; his perspective and voice always mesh well with the sonic creations I come up with,” explains Kokayi. “Tamara was a no-brainer. She is a good friend and I love the tone of her voice, it just oozes sunshine.”.
We totally agree, headnods into the sun.
