Chants "More Lyf"
Wisconsin-based newcomer Jordan Cohen (a.k.a. Chants) is dropping his Don't Miss U EP via Seattle's Hush Hush label, and has shared a cut from the record ahead of its September 23 release date. "More Lyf" exhibits the producers exuberance with an abundance of ideas, as Cohen spends much of his time mixing a quick arpeggio with layers of booming drums, steely handclaps, and trap-leaning details. Several tempo shifts and changes in rhythm keep the listener engaged, even if they can feel unintentionally disorienting; at times, the song sounds as if it was put together from the skeletons of several tracks left on the cutting-room floor. Nevertheless, the potential which Chants exhibits on "More Lyf" is enough to pique our interests.
