The digital side of Flapjack Records is celebrating its 20th release! To kick off the celebration we have a super sticky and sweet release from Vancouver’s emerging maple syrup conglomerate king, Kid Vibe. If you look on almost every bottle of decent maple syrup that is sold in the United States, you will find that it mostly comes from Canada, and most likely from Kid Vibe’s tap. Well now Flapjack has bottled up a big tasty bucket of Kid Vibe’s sticky syrup and digitized it nicely for all your earholes in the new “Van-City Syrup EP”.
The EP opens up with a Grade A light maple mop up called “Gangsta”. This sticky jam is a flavorful throw back to mid nineties RnB giants Bell Biv Devoe. If you pour this cut all over a tasty dance floor you are in for a real treat. Just watch as the beats just stick to the sweet bodies and dollup up the groove. This is a cut for mid morning hangover waffles and Flapjacks made with chocolate chips.
The next bottle of beats is another mid nineties RnB throwback called “Teddy”. A mid grade syrup made from finely aged maples from the outskirts of Vancouver. The beats are so thick in this jam, that by the time you hit the RnB break down, you’ll probably have that sweet sticky skeet all up in your weave.
“Hit That Switch” is a nice and dark Grade B maple mop stopper. Just like the finest Grade B, this syrup is chock full of funk flavor. The beats, bass, and Eazy- E vox are just what a crowd needs to wake up on the dance floor.
To finish off breakfast is another nice dark n thick syrup straight from the depths of the Canadian maple reserve. “Falling In” is a little deeper in color than the other varieties, but strong with beats and full maple flavor this cut pours nicely all over your Flapjacks. Who would have known something so sweet was hiding inside the maple trees of Canada. Get a sweet taste of this hidden gem on Kid Vibe – “Van-City Syrup EP”.
