Van Ike Links



Electro – Funkateers Van Ike is comprised of LA via BK producer Chuck Wild and songwriter extraordinaire Sam Barsh (responsible for cowriting Aloe Blaccs smash “The Man”) Their first cover song picks up the pace on Jhene Aiko‘s “The Worst” in their own glistening remake of the heartbreak ballad. What was once a somber down-trot love jones cut, gets some pep in its step as the Golden Coast duo inject the track with hints of neo-soul, trip-hop and ’90s r&b, morphing it into an immaculately clean treatment that is sure to please the two-stepper in us all. Lush electric rhodes and bells are the blood of this body with a subtle, yet pervasive dance-floor friendly swing sitting just underneath the skin.
