premiere: Porter Ray – Arithmetic
Seattle rapper Porter Ray shares another hazy and seductive gem from his debut LP Watercolor, out next month on Sub Pop. “Arithmetic” showcases Porter’s golden voice and effortlessly vivid flow over a dreamy, immersively narcotic beat, elevated by spectral siren calls from the great Stas THEE Boss (formerly of THEESatisfaction) and anchored by a crucial assist from revered Seattle MC Infinite. Listen to “Arithmetic” — along with lead single “Sacred Geometry“, featuring Ishmael Butler aka the Palaceer, who also A&R’d the project (…”advising from the stratos“) — below:
