The first thing you’ll notice on Elaquent‘s latest instrumental jam is a Q-Tip sample from A Tribe Called Quest‘s “Bonita Applebum.” My initial thought was that this was going to be a cheap splice of the original classic. I was definitely wrong, though, as the Canadian producer takes “Gotta Put Me On” in a stunning direction. Built on a glowing soundscapes of synthesizers and chopping drums, the track sets the mood for what’s to come. And what is to come is a new project titled Anywhere But Here.
No word on a release date yet, but “Gotta Put Me On” will undoubtedly hold us over.
