Citizen "Love Is a Human Topic"
The freshly-minted Australian label Templar is set to follow up its earlier releases from Dro Carey and Grown Folk with Vanity (artwork above), the debut EP from London resident Laurence Matthew Blake (a.k.a. Citizen), which is set to drop on December 12. Here, we have "Love Is a Human Topic," a cut which is not found on the EP, but serves as a fine example of Blake's darker dancefloor leanings, finding him burying a number of ravey stabs and FX beneath a demonically gliding bassline and crunchy drums, which have been heavily compressed well beyond the point of distortion. After giving the tune a listen below, you can stream all five tracks of the Vanity EP (including remixes from Helix and Darling Farah) after the jump.
