Neue Grafik "Blanche"
French producer Neue Grafik describes his sound as ''UK garage made in France," citing Untold and Ramadanman as stylistic mentors. This selected cut from his new EP for young French label Beat X Changers, however, leans more toward spectral, melodic house. ''Blanche'' opens with an easy build of a kick, snare, and shakers, which come coupled with swelling synth pads before focusing on sideways vocal stabs, sampled keys, and a loose, swung groove. Neue Grafik's full Pris EP—which features three other original cuts alongside "Blanche"—is out today.
