Peep this new joint “Runnin” from the living vampire – Pharrell. This jazz-age ditty song is off the soundtrack for the movie Hidden Figures, a forthcoming biopic about the pioneering black NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson.
“Runnin’” is an Idlewild-style homage to old juke-joint music, and Pharrell dusts the production with subtle contemporary touches. The most clever of these is the bass line, which uses a tuned electronic kick drum to approximate the kind of thing a swinging standup bassist might play.
If you ain’t a fan of Pharrell… then I suggest you keep it moving, but if Pharrell is your man… then you will love this.
