NY-native-turned-LA-resident P.U.D.G.E. will release his debut full-length next week on Ramp, but before that, we've got an exclusive preview of one of Idiot Box's slow-grooving jams. "Insensitivity" is a synth-addled MPC jam with a swagger not unlike that of beatmaking greats Madlib and J.Dilla. Like Madlib, P.U.D.G.E. fills in the gaps of his rhythms with wonky noise and random textures, and like the late Dilla, he uses thick, soulful basslines, head-knocking kicks, and massive claps to make up the meat of his track. P.U.D.G.E. still has a ways to go before gaining the same notoriety of his sample-rocking forefathers, but if "Insensitivity" is any indication, he's off to a great start.
