With the ambitious goal of "breaking barriers and pushing the envelope for soul music" in mind, Lumumba is set to drop its Tantalum EP via French outpost B.YRSLF Division, sharing EP cut "Coltan" ahead of its release next week. Opening with a distorted yelp, the peculiar production incorporates deconstructed elements of UK dance music: A low-growling vocal build is accentuated by subdued arpeggiations and a slow clap pattern, and melting synths create a somewhat uneasy feeling as they quickly shift between high-pitched chords and a slow-decaying whimper. Before the rest of Lumumba's unique Tantalum EP arrives on April 1, an early preview of its seven tracks can be found after the jump.
