The lo-fi phenomenon continues to pick up pace with more Youtube & Soundcloud channels dedicated to pushing the sound. The latest track to catch our eye is from Slim Hustla – Tell Me, Please, via the consistently brilliant OOUKFUNKYOO channel.

Now, we would be lying if we said we knew all about Slim Hustla. Just like the lo-fi scene as a whole, Slim Hustla’s image – or rather, lack of – is all very mysterious & toungue-in-cheek.

All we are able to tell you is that Tell Me, Please is a certified banger.

The track samples New Editions’ hit Can You Stand the Rain, with the unmistakable vocals of the ever soulful Johnny Gills over an infectious, groovey 4×4 beat.

Tell Me, Please is on the forthcoming Had To Hustle release via the From Glasgow with Love label. You can pre-prder Had to Hustle via bandcamp.
