37: LE1F
DARK YORK
(GREEDHEAD ENTERTAINMENT / CAMP & STREET)


‘Wut’

Darkling make-out music from NY rap’s freakiest new voice. Where, say, Mykki Blanco keeps her club-rap/scuzz-punk personas separate, Le1f just hurls everything into the pot: industrial textures, 8-bit beeps’n'bleeps, footwork riddims and crunk tics all deliquesce into a heady jet-black gumbo. Le1f’s a captivating host, tilting from treble-time flow to come-hither (s)mutterings. He’s aided by a none-more-2012 roll call of producers: Morri$, Nguzunguzu and 5kinandbone5 are among the backroom boys turning out some of their best work to date. Mongrel R&B, with teeth.
