Jukin’: Teddman’s The Only Dance EP

The news hook — the way this release would be timely, beyond it coming out just last week — for the new EP from BootyTune and Battle Train Tokyo artist Teddman would be an appearance from DJ PayPal, who just put out a (very good!) new album that has gotten some good attention. Yet that undersells how good The Only Dance is on its own, as it is a strong collection of juke music jumping from retro samples to Gucci Mane. It’s at times icy (“Slow It Down”) and unsettling (finale “The Only Dance,” featuring a spoken-word sample which is quite a doozy!), but above all else energetic. Get it here, or listen below.
