So for all the talk of Lunice and Hudson Mohawke’s TNGHT project updating the Timbaland weird-hop template, this new cut from Liverpool producer Melé is every bit as good.

Apparently forthcoming on a Melé mixtape, ‘Gold Casio’ is so simple but so effective, a popping, Neptunes’ esque melody bouncing on huge 808 kicks, with all the requisite gunshots and “go!” shouts that you could hope for. It’s the sort of track you can imagine huge US rappers wanting to freestyle over, but when it drops all they can do it smile. That’s all we do when we hear it, anyway (smile, not try and freestyle).

You can watch a recent FACT TV catch-up with Melé and Kano at the shoot for their ‘Beamer’ video here, and stream ‘Gold Casio’ below.
