Chicago based producer Lord Haiti combines the sounds of house and soul with some help from the great Nina Simone on his track “Alright”
Alright is a melodic house track that personifies the essence of good vibe music. Lord Haiti’s subtle sounds throughout the song are a testament his ability to create depth to his sound that is very unique in today’s production. The unique baseline adds validity to the sound keeping the beat on pace with the hint sample of Nina Simone provides a euphoric tones to the track and leaves you in a state of relaxation only wanting more. The title and sample for the song comes from Nina Simone’s “Here Comes the Sun” written by George Harrison of The Beetles.
Lord Haiti been featured on major sites including Jackthriller.com, RapChat & Istandard and more. His new track "Its Alright" is one to remember, coopting musical elements of new age house with the soulful folk rock lyrics of Ms. Simone. After first hearing “Don’t Wake Me Up” from Lord Haiti last year in 2015, I can see that he has emboldened himself to create a sound reminiscent of prominent vibe/soul producers J Dilla and Flying Lotus. I’m going to keep an ear out for this guy and you should too after listening to “Alright” in the link below:
