While Julio Bashmore‘s newest song “Kong” isn’t as thunderous as its presumed 25-foot namesake, the laid-back track still possesses a forceful and infectious allure. The British producer finds just the right tempo for Bixby’s incredibly smooth vocals, which meld with wavy synths and steady, potent percussions for one of the best songs of the week ( or is it year?).
Bashmore’s debut album is set to be out this month through his own label, Broadwalk Records. You can listen to “Kong” and the Jessie Ware-featuring “Peppermint” below.
