Supreme Cuts are a production duo from Chicago, and on projects like Chrome Lips, their collaborative mixtape with Haleek Maul, they’ve developed their own mesmeric synth-rap sound. Right now, they’re at work on their debut album, and its first single is “Gone,” a track that takes the classic sound of Chicago diva-house and transforms it into an atmospheric burble. The song has excellently wailed guest vocals from Mahaut Modino, the teenage daughter of the rock photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino, and it builds around her with wisps of sound. Listen below.
The Supreme Cuts album is coming in January.
