Blackedout "You Don't Understand"
- Words: Brad Stabler
Burgeoning slow-jam producer Blackedout has quietly self-released his first proper effort, showcasing a love for repurposing distinct R&B samples around patiently bult backdrops. "You Don't Understand" is by far the sparsest tune in the burgeoning artist's sparse catalog. Built on a slow, thrusting stomp, Blackedout gently slides vocal samples on to, before looping them over and over to the point where they turn from a declaration of sorts to almost begging. Blackedout's debut EP is out now as a "name-your-price" download on his Bandcamp.
