Brooklyn's Slava is associated with the borough's burgeoning electronic-music-meets-visual-arts scene, so it's fitting that his latest EP dropped on Software, a label headed by one of that world's most visible figures, Oneohtrix Point Never. "File," the first track from the Soft Control EP (artwork, featuring a "file," pictured above), starts off as a sparse clip of beat music, but develops into something more exciting. As the song progresses, synths and beats layer, and around the midpoint, Slava catches us off guard by unveiling a fully fledged, hands-in-the-air house track. Download the track below and then stream Soft Control in its entirety after the jump.
