Active Child – “Subtle” (Feat. Mikky Ekko)
Pat Grossi, better known as Active Child, posted on Facebook last week that no one would be able to guess the guest feature on his single for the upcoming Rapor EP, “Subtle.” It turns out that the guest feature he was referring to is Mikky Ekko, best known for his contributions to Rihanna’s “Stay.” Grossi’s production is taut, particularly with those sharply edited horn samples, but it’s balanced by Ekko’s warm voice. They make a wonderful combination and the song acts like a total counterpoint to the previous wordless single “She Cut Me,” that was released last month. Listen to below.
Rapor is out 10/22 on Vagrant.
