Over the past year, Stefan Ringer has quietly become one of Atlanta’s most reliable rising producers. Delivering records under his own name as well as his REKchampa moniker for labels such as somethinksounds’ The Love Below offshoot, cassette label Harsh Riddims, and fellow Atlanta producer Kai Alcé’s NDATL imprint last year, Ringer returns this month with the four-track Inner Monologue EP, which finds him operating as Black Suede. Under the guise, Ringer runs his soulful production style through a darker tint, such as on EP closer “Purgatory,” a murky house effort that methodically carves a path through sludgy low-end and noisy loops while leaving enough space in the high-end for some sparse vocals. One of four-tracks included on Inner Monologue (though the record’s digital version does have an additional bonus cut), Black Suede’s “Purgatory” can be grabbed below, where a full stream of the man’s new EP for the Atlanta-based CGI label can also be found.
