Illuminate (Single Edit)
This is the most ambitious, far reaching, darkest and most complex of Hakim's work to date. It mirrors the work of Isaac Hayes in the 1970s and takes Hakim's music to a new and fascinating place. 3 months in the making, this is an album for people who love to be carried away by what they listen to.more
