You guys, I am beyond excited to share this AMAZING track that my friend Tim, also known as the talented DJ CUBBY put out yesterday!
It was debuted in the The Fader, and so far, I cannot get enough of it. I probably have listened to the song about 25 times since yesterday. I’m probably not even exaggerating. It’s THAT good. I’m pretty speechless, and so, in this case, my explanation of this song is probably going to be all over the place – I love it, it’s unreal, the beats…the lyrics, the soundddddd gahhhhh – hahaha. SO, Fader does the perfect job of explaining the flawless sounds you will be listening to:
“Even before Current’s falsetto hook drops on this first missive from NYC producer Cubby, it’s hard not to feel pretty smitten with the sound of the drums alone—the textural splay of the brush sounds, the just-a-little-too-slow snare. It’s a fittingly drowsy foundation for a song about the stupor-like state we can fall into over the course of a protracted winter like this one, split between the calm, dull pleasures of a time when life [is] slow, nights [are] boring and the feeling that you want to sleep in instead of going to work in the morning but you have to brave the slush and keep grinding because your rent’s past due. In fact, those are some of the literal scenarios described by the rapper Kwane, starting off all drawling and sluggish before eventually taking a dramatic left-turn into the suppressed anger that comes with a really bad case of cabin fever.”
I mean, c’mon…now you HAVE to listen to it! ;) So, without further adieu, here it is:
“COLD” featuring Kwane and Jeremy Current
