Brace yourselves, Slum Village fans – Elzhi, Illa J and T3‘s latest single may come as a little bit of a surprise. Faster finds the Motown trio diverging from the smooth-but-gritty sound they pioneered in partnership with the late J Dilla to try on something a little radio-friendlier and (slighty) more uptempo than usual. Backed by RJ Young‘s glossy, chilly synths, the group showcase their sweet-talking skills, trying to persuade a special girl into shifting their relationship into high gear: “What you’re wishin’ I can do, it’s my mission I plan to, in addition I’ll stand through the good, the bad weather, the rain, the shine, you remain as mine…” On the guest tip, Booth-approved singer/songwriter Colin Munroe shows why he’s hip-hop’s go-to guy for studio-layered, octave-jumping hook vocals, crafting a chorus as catchy as it is un-singalong-able. Faster has definite potential, but the question remains: is its pop-appealing sound a good look for Slum Village? I’ll leave that for you to decide. If you’re digging it, keep it locked for the latest on their Villa Manifesto LP, due out this summer via E1 Music.
