Ahead of his Every Little World release due this Monday, MNEK blitzes through Groove Theory/Brandy blends, Quiet Storm sheen, genre/gender-bending house, and Whitney on The Mixtape Noun. It's almost jarring--each track gets no more than a verse before fading into the next, the kind of call-and-response set a DJ may squeeze in between an opener and a headliner at a concert. But the magic is in the brevity, and the replay value is potent. Stream and stream again below.
