premiere: Lil Silva – Lines
Prolific UK producer (and Banks collaborator) Lil Silva shares the arresting lead single from his excellent forthcoming EP, out this spring via London label Good Years. The buzzing, glowing late-night club jam "Lines" starts off low-key enough, with Silva's own haunting disembodied vocal sample floating over the ethereal track in a way that recalls some of James Blake's earlier, most skeletal work. It's briefly joined by a skittering beat, then dialed back until around the 2:25 mark, when the whole thing just ascends to another level. Four Tet seems to be a big fan of this one, too. Lil Silva's JIMI EP is out May 6th.
