James Ferraro “Blood Flow”

05 Mar 2013 — Henning Lahmann

Here's the first taste of James Ferraro's forthcoming, highly anticipated new mixtape Cold; pictures of its cover have been around for quite a while, and now "Blood Flow" should be a hint of what to expect musically, and well, it is just another surprise. The track is built around a very basic, snare-laden breakbeat, with cheesy synth pads meandering aimlessly in the background, but most striking are of course those echo-heavy, unashamedly romantic R&B vocals that sound like, oh, I can't even say right now what they sound like. A wounded polar bear perhaps.

The Cold Mixtape is out March 25. Watch this space.
