First Listen

Alex B "You and I Both Know"

Fresh-faced beatmaker and Brainfeeder mix contributor Alex B sent over this premiere of a track from his forthcoming debut, Moments. Entitled "You and I Both Know," this diddy is a brief look into the type of herky-jerky rhythms and smooth, spaced-out sonics to be heard through the album's 17 tracks. Within two minutes we are treated to a tweaked soul loop, delayed vocal stabs, sporadic percussive elements, and swirling synth arpeggiations wrapped around a descending bass melody. It all comes off sounding more like an interlude between larger movements, but we can only know for sure when Moments is released April 6 via Alex B's own Elm and Oak imprint.
