Flubba "Tell Me"
NYC-bred night stalker Flubba (a.k.a. Aaron Lifton) favors the long game on his new Black Velvet EP. The broken-techno producer makes tracks that simmer like a cigarette in the dark, as they offer disquieting takes on building atmosphere that is all attack, no release. The approach works wonders on "Tell Me": For the most part, Flubba keeps his tracks hollow, letting his screwed vocal samples and muted, clangy percussion taunt and threaten the listener. Even if the dark, sensual vibes are the most obvious thing to ponder, "Tell Me" is a fine club track, too, minimal and more than generous with its low end. Before "Tell Me" is released with the rest of Flubba's Black Velvet record on April 8, previews of its tracks are available to stream after the jump.
