Jim-E Stack finds a really sweet spot between what is soulful and what sounds basic or primitive. The vocal sample is important for him, he stunts it and grunts it until it hulks. His beats might be lush for a moment, but they'll quickly fall back to simple bang-bang percussion, like he's hitting pots and pans. It's powerful stuff, tapping into our basic instinct to just dance. Check out his latest, a prelude to his forthcoming EP out in September on Good Years, and revisit his exclusive FADER Mix while you're at it as well.
