Black Noi$e: 12″ EP

Noted Detroit hip-hop producer flips to house music with this surprising (but unsurprisingly great) 12″ on Vanity Press. “Sunburn” is the 45 RPM A-side, and its sunny beat sort of smooths out its sense of paranoia (although that screwy synth line on top hits you in the jaw). On the 33 B-side, “Freaknik” has more of a swing to it, with some faded jazzy samples and strings. “Brick Wall” starts out with knocking beats making you think you’re in for some sort of knackered UK bass deconstruction, but then it switches to breezy yet very busy electro, with snatches of harps and angelic vocals as well as other wisps of sounds floating around. This is thinking ahead. Pay attention!
