Following his exhausting string of shows during CMJ 2012, New York rapper LE1F has teamed up with collaborator Boody for a new release on Boysnoize. The duo’s Liquid EP will come out digitally and as a 12″ November 19, but yesterday, Boysnoize made the EP’s six tracks available for short previews on SoundCloud. Check out four original tracks, as well as two remixes, one from Cedaa and one from MikeQ and Divoli S’vere, below.
Liquid features lots of eerie electronic sounds that, fittingly, bring to mind watery imagery, from raindrops to ice rinks. Highlights of the EP include “Soda,” where LE1F demonstrates his refined flow and lyricism against Boody’s production of a chopped-up “The Ha Dance” by Masters At Work. Additionally, the bass-heavy “Sweet Tea” is further mellowed by LE1F’s electronically tinged, vocals.
