One of this year’s strangest records is an inspired collaboration between two very different artists.

New York rapper Sensational, who’s known for his output on illbient-defining label WordSound and has worked with artists like Madteo and NHK’Koyxen, has teamed up with Milo Smee, boss of Berlin techno label Power Vacuum, for a new record on the latter’s label.

Their You In The Right Spot EP combines fragments of frazzled electro from Smee’s production archives (under his Kruton alias) with vocals from Sensational, resulting in a raw and off-kilter sound that might appeal to fans of leftfield rappers like Shabazz Palaces.

Ahead of its release on February 2, stream Sensational & Kruton’s ‘You In The Right Spot (Bintus Reconstruction)’ below, and catch up on the story of Sensational in this documentary.
