Milo McBride & Afriqua "Platinum Band"

New York producer Milo McBride premiered his "Losaand" track with XLR8R back in September, and is returning again to share a collaborative cut with Berlin-based beatsmith Afriqua. Essentially a remix of Mr. C's "The Cha Cha Slide," "Platinum Band" sees the two producers honing their own unwieldy methods to make a pleasantly dancefloor-ready production rife with dubby synths and contorting percussion. McBride and Afriqua craft a metronomic combination of pitched percussion sounds into their swinging grooves, breaking it all down into a bass-heavy assortment of undulating and reverb-soaked synths before "Platinum Band" climaxes as a full-on house jam.
