Weekly MP3 #187: K*Saba - Cage Fright
Nice electronic hip-hop beat up on Mr Saba's Bandcamp, or stream and download below.
Love the slightly unsteady strings that open this and how they come in more fully as the beat drops. The track never really settles - lots of great shifts and tweaks and the like going on - but is never flashy in the way it progresses. Easy to just let the whole thing roll past or plenty of joy to be had in focusing in on any of the layers that make it all work.
Wellington producer and horn player Karnan Saba has shortened his name a bit. The whole EP is really good.
