Your man SlothBoogie has been mixing, promoting and writing about music for some time, so it’s only natural that he has now turned his hand to producing it. He says himself that it’s been a long time coming, but it’s very much worth the wait.
‘Baby It’s You’ is a slow-burning stomper that’s driven by a heavy kick drum and some distinctly dancehall riddims. A sassy vocal sample provides a nice backdrop, but the real earworm is the chord progression which lurks in the background until 3:43 when it’s unleashed on the (kind of) unsuspecting listener.
It’s the kind of warm sequence that has served the likes of Major Lazer and Rihanna splendidly and it sounds great in different surroundings here. This is a lazy, whimsical sunsetter of a tune, and even in the midst of January it constitutes six minutes of joyous escapism.
