Track of the Day #6: j^p^n – [spoils]

This track is cool. There’s no doubt about it. The jangling synths over the broken beats are a sound that we’re all too familiar with in this modern age. But this is  cut with a flute riff that makes the song even more hip hop sounding. The song morphs once again with the inclusion of the horns, whilst the sounds slide into one another the broken beat forces the listener to pay attention to everything that is going on in the song. The hip hop vibes are further disrupted by the interludes within the song; the first concentrates on the beat, the second adopts a string sound which dominates the middle third of the track, and the third showcases delicate keys which are encased by a ghostly chant. Solid beat.
