The Netherlands' Halp will soon deliver his Tic Tac Toe EP via the Rotterdam-based Lowriders Collective imprint, but has preemptively shared this garage-leaning cut from the release. "Baby" features a smoothly swinging rhythm, a handful of elastic synth tones that rise and fall with the sway of the beat, and choppy vocal samples that serve purposes more percussive than melodic. It's a solid tune fit for just about any flavor of dancefloor, and will drop along with a couple more originals and some remixes from the likes of Starkey and Krampfhaft on February 14. If you're so inclined, you can stream a few more tracks from Halp's Tic Tac Toe EP, after the jump.
