♫♪  Le1f - “Koi” (produced by SOPHIE)

Having appeared in live sets for something like 20 years now, Le1f has finally released his hot-before-it-dropped collaboration with SOPHIE. Titled “Koi,” the track sees Le1f rapping about a “boy” over thick, elastic synths, with Monomachine malleability twisting ascendantly through the verses to a hyperactive chorus of claps and pitched-up vocals. The sound design is impeccable, with sound slaps, rhythmic explosions, and a second verse that damn near falls apart.

Catch the video above, and look out for Le1f’s debut album, Riot Boi. It’s scheduled for sometime this fall on XL Recordings and also features tracks from Evian Christ, Dubbel Dutch, and more.
