New Kotetsu: “Gloss”

Producer Kotetsu released one of the stranger — and, accordingly, one of our pleasant surprises of 2017 — mixtapes earlier this year with MAVTAPE 1. Now, the Picnic Disco member has upped the ante with MAVDISC, featuring woozy songs from the tape alongside a bevy of new ones. “Gloss” is a shimmering highlight, a bouncy track featuring glassy electronic droplets and vocal samples tripping over themselves into a delirious rush of sound. Like many of Kotetsu’s creations, it leans close to being a pure beat. But like all of them, it morphs enough over its short time to be totally compelling on its own. Listen above.
