Citizen "Members Only"
Sultry, late-night vibes color this smooth, carved-from-stone piece of house music from London's Citizen (an artist we've heard before). An unreleased cut that precedes his four-track Deep End EP, "Members Only" gallops on some soulfully screwed vocals spliced with classic Chicago-era cymbals, thumping with maximum-strength kicks until plush chords enter the fray to dominate the rest of the proceedings. With quick pivots and cut-outs, Citizen keeps the track fresh before spiraling into a second half rife with whispered snippets of conversation adding an eerie, yet alluring percussive backing to the jam's conclusion. Heavy on style but pumped full of head- (and hip-)swiveling substance, keep an eye out for the new EP when it drops on June 18. In the meantime, view the cover art and tracklist, after the jump.
