Download: T.H. White "Blue and Cream"

T.H. White can lay claim to the title of "musician" as easily as he can to "producer." The New York-based artist lays live drumming, vocal harmonies, and other instruments alongside electro-flavored synthesizers, making tracks that are equally dancefloor and radio friendly. The Private Spotlight is his sophomore full-length, and the first release for New York-based Sky Council Recordings.
