#BumpThis: Remy Baggins & Tomi Thomas’ “Vibrate”

June 26, 2019

There’s so much music out there that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to stay up with their favourite artists or what’s new and hot right now. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a daily series that features the one song you need to listen to, every day. Don’t say we never did anything for you.


Genres exist for a reason. Artists like Remy Baggins and Tomi Thomas exists to subvert that reason, however strong you think it may be. The former, a multi-versed audio creative has, with projects like “Eigengrau” and production credits ranging from trap to sultry R&B, shown his ability to build a home in diverse, often detailed soundscapes. On “Vibrate”, he enlists another genre-bender in L.O.S member, Tomi Thomas.

The song is a cut from Baggins’ just-released album, “Hentai” which is named after the sexually-lewd variety of Japanese anime. As its name suggests, the song oozes sex. The production, however, doesn’t give it all away. It is detailed, yet bubbly afro-fusion – the kind that makes you believe Lagos is actually a holiday destination and demands to be listened to in a cab speeding towards a beach party.

Yet, the two artists let you know that the subject matter is the oldest dance and little else. Baggins sings in absurdly lewd detail about the things he wants to do to and with this unnamed woman he’s obsessed with. He promises to do right by her, describing elaborately just how much she’ll enjoy his ‘company’.

Much like the rest of “Hentai”, the song transforms sultry into adventurous, straddling the fine line between music for knacks and “put me in your summer playlist and jam with the guys”.

Tomi Thomas speeds things up even further – conjuring the image of a confident, adventurous lover. He does what he’s always done well – putting your imagination to the test with lyrics sung with the verve of a preacher. And he does so without overshadowing Baggins.

Together, the two make knacks as much of a vibe as it ever has been. 100% recommended for this June weather.
