London producer Lil Silva made his name by making the kind of pillowy, tattered beats that artists like Banks and Sampha could wrap their voice around. On his upcoming new EP, Drumatic, there’s no one there to soften the edges — the title track is a stuttering, cutting instrumental punctuated by non-stop “woops” that add to the song’s building tension. This single comes on the heels of two others — “606” and “New Squeeze” — that operate on the same playing field. Listen below.
Drumatic is out 5/10 via Good Years.
