Rapidly rising NYC rap outfit (some say it’s a movement) Ratking bring us our featured track today with ‘Canal’, the first single from their highly anticipated forthcoming debut LP ‘So It Goes’. Following a widely publicized signing to the legendary XL Recordings label, the first taste from the album has definitely made an impact with us. It’s such a distinct sound which is characterized by droning, electronic walls of sound and crisp percussion which really gives a pulsating heart to the track, not to mention the flowing verses which add urgency and panic to the fold. It’s worth noting that King Krule will feature somewhere on the LP, but all we really want is to hear a full body of work or else this is just going to be on repeat forever.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfyDcKCqjJ8[/youtube]
RATKING’s debut LP ‘So It Goes’ is available April 8th.
