New (Kinda) Blackbass With Ryuei Kotoge: “Unfair”

The surest way to give your project a musical boost is get a great under-the-radar producer helping out with the music. Blackbass call on Kansai producer and INNIT-adjacent creator Ryuei Kotoge to help construct the sparse “Unfair.” This one came out on an EP released earlier this year, but now gets a video, and it is worth digging in a bit deeper. Like that FNCY song from yesterday, the chilly music helps to have the actual vocals of Blackbass — digitally manipulated as they are — to come through a bit more clearly. But this one also offers more tension, the stiffer beat colliding with the ice-like keyboard notes just right to create something with a very lonely vibe. Listen above.
