Diggin’ This: Mono/Poly ft Kimbra – “Easy Living” (Co-Produced by Thundercat) (Naymlis Records)
Summertime, and the livin’ is easy.
Having previously wowed the galaxy with the stainless steel bass of “When I’m Comin’ For Ya,” Bakersfield, California’s Charles E. Dickerson, otherwise known as Mono/Poly, returns with “Easy Living,” the second single to be taken from his forthcoming new album, Monotomic.
Featuring the voice of Kimbra and co-production by Thundercat (who masterfully adds a few of his delightful bass noodles to the track’s edges), “Easy Living” is laid-back and half-speed, a summertime future R&B cut that drives slow.
The best part is at 2:12 when all but those pulsed synth bass waves drop out and a new drum pattern offers an ultimatum, paired with an exquisite, intergalactic transmission of Kimbra‘s reversed vocals.
Track of the day.
