Last March, a Berlin-based beatsmith by the unassuming name of IAMNOBODI made waves in the Booth with his unofficial remix of Miguel‘s breakout single, Sure Thing. A year, nearly to the day, later, the buzzmaking producer has returned to give us a taste of his original work. New promo cut Reaction manages to be both sensually laid-back and invigorating, thanks to NOBODI’s unique boardwork. Ebbing and flowing synths coexist with jittery, syncopated percussion and subtly funky synth accents. Michigan singer/songwriter JMSN isn’t the first guest you’d expect to hear on a cut like this one, but the stylistic contrast works in his favor; the sprightly instrumental brings out an unexpected lightness in his falsetto-laced vocals. This joint isn’t attached to a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on IAMNOBODI’s plans as further details emerge. Fans of JMSN can hear more on his November 2013 EP, †Pllajë†.
