Walton returns with a strictly-limited EP on Hyperdub to precede the release of his debut album Beyond.
Baby is a vinyl-only, once it’s gone it’s gone kind of release, just 300 copies available.
Baby is a brilliant and extreme mutation based around an R&B a capella, one that seems energised by R&B's avant-garde but danceable late ‘90s period. A hiccuping giggle over stuttering rusty engine stabs, and a so-stiff-it's-funky kick and and snare combination, make this a track that works brilliantly on the dance floor by sheer force of ideas and wildness.
Can't You See's widescreen ambience is held together by epic swelling chords, punctuated with rolling 8-bit spirals, trap-like bass, and snares. It's held together so tightly, it feels like it's going to 'drop' at any time, but prefers to just tease the listener in a state of excited suspense.
Also included is an instrumental version of Baby.
