Dropping on Quality Goods Records is California’s sumthin sumthin. He has just presented his debut EP for UZ’s flourishing label, with outstanding results.
‘Afterglow’ takes the form of four totally unique tracks, one of which featuring rising UK grime MC Snowy. Kicking off with ‘Lotus,’ an 808-heavy tune that is given real rhythmical focus–the perfect introduction to the set. ‘Pink’ is the gorgeous, electronica-inspired tune up next, and its off-beat melody and barely there snippets of vocals make for a fantastic listen.
While, ‘Hollow’ works as a real contrast to the two opening cuts, stripping down sumthin sumthin’s sound to a shuffling, rhythmically sharp blend of cavernous bleeps and quietly droning, elongated synth chords. Last but certainly not least comes ‘Moves’ ft. Snowy, a fantastic musical collision of two young talents.
It’s a huge release that deserves your attention this week!
