Broke One "Gravity"
On "Gravity," Italian producer and recent Red Bull Music Academy graduate Broke One doesn't waste any time crafting his statement of intent. Grafting an oft-worn Brandy sample atop a drifting organ, he milks the vocal snippet for all it's worth, flexing the "how you make me feel" hook while allowing the music to twist and morph behind it. The track leans hard on a nostalgic vibe, owing parts of its sound to bygone days of classic Chicago and Detroit, but still carves out a small niche for Broke One to simply play around and have fun along the way. "Gravity" is the closing tune from Waiting Lines (artwork above), the producer's forthcoming EP for Bmkltsch. The record is due to arrive on April 9.
