Ever since I took home my first sheet of “Mr. Yuk” stickers as a preschooler, I’ve taken it on faith that consuming toxic substances was a bad idea. But Slot-A‘s latest single has inspired me to face down my fear and finally sample the delicious array of household cleaners stashed underneath my sink. Best enjoyed with a tall glass of bleach (Disclaimer: don’t actually do this, for Christ’s sake.), Don’t Be Afraid of Poison sees the Chicago beatsmith blending elements from Bel Biv Devoe’s Poison and Musiq Soulchild‘s Soul Star to create a groove that’s both mesmerizing and subtly uplifting. Has this atmospheric jam left you craving more? More fresh instrumentals await on the DJBooth-hosted P.O.I. (Power of Intention) street album, scheduled for digital release next Tuesday, November 26.
