Absent has lived up to his name in the DJBooth over the past year and a half; though he earned positive reader reviews with his first feature, November 2011’s Louder Than Words, the Twin Cities representative has yet to make a return visit. Today, he finally emerges from the woodwork with Smiling Faces, a newly-released single off his next studio album. DJ D Mill‘s psychedelic soul production, sampled from Undisputed Truth’s Smiling Faces Sometimes, backs the headliner as he trades aggressive verses with guest spitters Prof and Bobby Hatfield. Now that Absent’s made his presence known on our pages, are you craving more fresh tunes? You’ll find what you seek on forthcoming full-length DNA, due out February 8, via Sp Styles.
