Hear DJ Koze's Collaboration with Matthew Dear
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Before his new LP, Amygdala, drops on March 26, Pampa boss DJ Koze has shared another of the album's tracks, the Matthew Dear-featuring "My Plans." As perhaps only Koze is able to do, the song is somehow both refreshingly bizarre and undeniably soulful, as it's chock full of micro-samples and the slightest of R&B undercurrents—on top of which Dear (pictured above) delivers an appropriately ambivalent performance, his layered vocals contemplating why he's unphased by the world falling apart in front of his eyes. "My Plans" is streaming below. Full details for the forthcoming album can be found here and the LP's collaborative effort with Caribou is still availlible to stream here.
