Simply Ded "I Had You"
This plodding bass tune comes courtesy of 18-year-old producer Simply Ded, a Manchester-based beatmaker who will be releasing his debut record next month via the ADD Cat imprint. The main focus of the song is the vocal sample, which starts off chopped into bits, but eventually fills out into an entire phrase. As the tune breaks down, the main bass note switches from the down beat to the up beat for an interesting effect, and the song ends with a chilled-out, head-nodding rhythm. Simply Ded's Problems EP (artwork above) drops on February 9, but you can stream a preview of the record after the jump.
