Le1f always knows how to bring together a style and sound that goes beyond the norm but is still simultaneously addicting beyond belief, and his newest track “Umami / Water” is just as delectable as the name suggest (umami in Japanese, after all, is translated delicious). The “Umami” side is delightfully weird and perfect for those dark Brooklyn warehouses, while the “Water” side is made a little bit more for the after party. While varying in bpms and rhythm, the two magically are able to work together like chocolate and peanut butter.
His new album, “Riot Boi”, will be out next week via Terrible Records.
