San Francisco up-and-comer RaSun may not be a familiar face in the Booth, but he certainly knows how to introduce himself—with an exclusive world premiere, of course! Addressing a lady so enchanting she’s got him half-crazy with love, he admits that, though he’s tried and tried, “I Can’t Get You Off My Mind.” A cut this romantic needs an appropriately sultry instrumental, and who better to provide one than a beatsmith named after literature’s most famous lover? Don Juan C lives up to his name, backing Ra’s Caribbean-influenced vocal stylings with mellow, meandering acoustic guitar licks and warm synth flourishes, and if the singer’s sweet nothings don’t have you swooning, then fellow CA native The Jacka‘s earnest rhymes on the back end likely will. A memorable twist on the slow-jam formula, Can’t Get You Off My Mind is set for inclusion on forthcoming LP Alone Again, which has yet to receive a release date.
