Inga Copeland "Trample"
Sometimes, making blunted beats out of esoteric found audio and doing warped Sade covers with your good buddy just isn't enough. Sometimes, you've got to walk that road alone, too. Such is the case for Inga Copeland, one half of the nebulous, genre-defying Hype Williams outfit, who recently shared this solo production she calls "Trample." We'd be lying if we didn't say this reminds us a whole hell of a lot of Copeland's usual musical outlet, but there is definitely something fresh here, even if we can't put our finger on it. Maybe it's the unusually strong vocal presence, maybe it's the relatively straightforward nature of the song, or maybe it's the occasional use of—gasp!—stereo channels that sets it apart. As is best with Hype Williams' music, we'll try not to dissect it too much. Copeland and Co.'s musical enigmas are best digested at face value. (via Altered Zones)
