Crack in the Road

There are a number of ways of catching the attention of a blogger; politeness, simplicity and humility all go a long way.

In Mute’s case one photo and a soundcloud link was enough to get my attention. What followed was one of the most inward, elegant and graceful pieces of hiphop I’ve heard in a long time. The gentle plucking found in Here I Am clashes and intertwines with the furious vocal samples that litter the track, exploring a very clear concept amongst the groove. Bad Dreams is perhaps the weaker of the 2 tracks, struggling to find a destination aside from some rather beautiful sample arrangements, regardless, it’s a rather striking entry into the ring from this London based producer.
