Spirit Guide "Boo Suena"

Brooklyn producer Spirit Guide just sent over this shuffling cut from his forthcoming Intimacy EP, which is due out on August 14 via Ounce. "Boo Suena" represents a wide palette of inspiration for the artist, as he combines seemingly unrelated samples to form a genre-defying whole. Breakneck drumwork, sub-infused basslines, and aggressive synths are all at work here, and as a result, the track's quieter moments become all the more important. Often, it's that same negative space which nearly brings the tune to a screeching halt—like the appearance of a lone, distant piano in the track's spontaneous ambient bridge, for example—before Spirit Guide smartly returns to an infectious chorus which emanates darker undertones.
