Young Smoke n DJ Metro
iFlight v.1 [EP]

After having just released his first major album — Space Zone on Planet Mu — you’d think Young Smoke would allow at least a week to pass by before even thinking about a new project. But, like flailing your hands around too much, that wouldn’t be the footwork way. Over the weekend, Young Smoke and DJ Metro (two-thirds of footwork clique Flight Muzik, headed by DJ Diamond) self-released iFlight v.1 on SoundCloud. The six-track EP has the 8-bit, spaced-out vibe typical of Young Smoke’s work (“Mellowcore”), but it’s also infused with the grounded, sample-heavy approach characteristic of DJ Metro (“Candyman,” “I’ve Been Waiting”).
