Slackin’ Beats – Make Love (Teaser)

A few months ago the Emues blog wrote about this new producer Slackin’ Beats. Read what Maja said about the young, Swedish producer here. 

With his Jersey Club-influensed sound, Slackin’ Beats has made fresh remixes of already great tracks such as Mack Beats – ”Lägg dig ner” and Destinys Child – ”Cater 2 U”.

Today he released a video teaser with the caption:
”Make Love EP and the video to Make Love out soon!! / SLACKIN”
We look forward to see the result of an EP that he describes as a ”soulful trip thru instrumental hip hop-beats”.

Meanwhile, take a look at the video teaser below.

I want to hear and see more of this guy, so shouldn’t we book him together? Do you want to have Slackin’ Beats DJ at your club?

Make it happen, by following these three steps:

  1. Sign in to Emues.com using Facebook or your email and click ‘Suggest new concert’
  2. Once the suggestion is accepted by Slackin’ Beats and the venue, buy your ticket and start promoting the potential gig to other fans and friends
  3. When enough tickets are sold the gig  is booked and successfully financed!

Don’t be shy, contact us if you have any questions.
