RBMA alumni Naphta is set to drop the Valley Queen EP on October 1, but before it arrives via Car Crash Set—a digital label with a track record for picking out talented producers early on—the Polish producer has shared "Seduction" as the record's first preview. Despite what impression the EP's artwork and title might leave, "Seduction" is certainly not a light-hearted affair. Sure, it has its share of tropical-tinged chords and melodic flourishes, but at its core, Naphta's production is a solidly built shuffler with plenty of rhythmic power to keep the dancefloor's attention.
