Last week, California-based label Body High—run by Samo Sound Boy and LOL Boys‘ Jerome Potter—posted a preview of the six tracks included in its newest release. The record arrives today from LA producer Floyd Campbell, whose bio remains more or less a mystery. “Drifted,” the title track from the elusive artist’s brand-new EP, revels in a rain of stuttering percussion and dollops of gummy synth tones that glide from stereo to mono. The tinny melody and heavily edited vocal samples take a page from LOL Boys’ playbook, as Campbell matches tweaked tropical melodies and monosyllabic vocal samples with the sheer intensity of his track’s machinegun beat.
