HADE + DWFL "Talk Slow"
Cologne-based production duo HADE + DWFL has been working together on and off for some years under the name Ampersand. Switching to a new moniker, the two beatmakers are dropping their debut album this week via Melting Pot; called The Healthiest Man In Chicago, HADE + DWFL's LP is joyously difficult to categorize, as it offers a mutant blend of footwork, Chicago house, and UK bass sounds. In contrast to the record's very evidently juke-influenced title track—for which XLR8R premiered the video last month—"Talk Slow" pairs molten, syrupy production and slowed-down vocal samples with a beat scene-inspired synth sheen.
