NKC "Radar (feat. F. Reece)"
Courtesy of the Awkward Movements stable in London, here's a funky and classic-sounding number from 20-year-old producer NKC. This unreleased tune precedes the artist's new Afrobeat-tinged EP for the label, Fading Floor/Shockout, which is out on May 7 and features remixes by Maddslinky and Raimo. "Radar" didn't make it onto that EP, but is nonetheless a driving dancefloor number that settles its groove on a laid-back organ sample, all while utilizing vocals from young Welsh folk artist F. Reece. A secret weapon of sorts, this one boasts similarities to the feminine UK funky stylings of Cooly G and, more recently, Champion and Ruby Lee Ryder's anthem "Sensitivity." You can preview the new NKC four-tracker after the jump.
