Ambassadeurs "Duke Red"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Just last week, Brighton up-and-comer Ambassadeurs shared a video for his tune "M.O.P.E." Now, he's passed along a new track, "Duke Red," which is said to serve as the first taste of the producer's as-yet-untitled forthcoming debut album. As on "M.O.P.E.," Ambassadeurs manages to combine a number of genres here, as traces of West Coast beat music, UK bass, and the now-ubiquitous touch of modern R&B are all present. It's the kind of tune a beatmaker can appreciate, one that moves in measured steps and is held together by its solid drum work and an impressively precise aesthetic.
