Thanks to Dre for putting us on to Olympia, Washington’s Braxton/Palmer, and more specifically, his excellent new debut two-part Creeper single, due next month on Ceremony Recordings. “Creeper, Pt. II” is a perfect introduction to the producer’s glimmering, vintage deep house, and his preternatural flair for flipping vaguely familiar vocal samples — in this case, an inspired choice from D’Angelo — into haunting, soulful post-2-AM mantras (see also: “What I Want“). Creeper is out May 14.
