As a follow up to the 2021 release of LoTown Vol. 1, uChill has released LoTown Vol. 2. This new project features ten new renditions of iconic tracks that pay tribute to original Motown classics.
For this first installment, released in 2021, UMe offered lo-fi producer LOUALLDAY a deep dive into memorable Motown classics, resulting in 10 new renditions of iconic tracks that pay tribute to the original music while also bringing an authentic lo-fi flavor – a cross-section of old and new.
Says LOUALLDAY about initially getting involved with the project, “It was pretty mind-blowing to hear something like Marvin Gaye‘s isolated vocals. I feel like not many people will ever get a chance to hear those, so I was honored to get the opportunity.”
LOUALLDAY picked out special moments that he wanted to highlight, isolating iconic vocals, melodies, and string arrangements that had always made an impression on him in his youth.
“My history with Motown started with my parents. They were always playing music when we were kids, especially Motown. I personally got into Motown when I started sampling. I remember hovering over my older brother’s shoulder, trying to learn how to chop classic samples up. Motown has always been in my life in one way or another.”
