Over the course of the last year, youthful UK producer Drop/Dead (a.k.a Jay Donaldson) has consistently impressed fans of forward-thinking bass music with his warm brand of emotive garage house—displayed most recently on a couple of remixes (check those out here and here). On this unreleased original track, Donaldson lets hand claps drive the rhythm behind his typically hazy synth melodies and chopped vocals, eventually reaching a bass-laden climax that sounds more like it came from Detroit than the tunesmith’s native England. And it that’s not enough Drop/Dead for you, the DJ/producer also recently dropped an excellent podcast for Disko404, which you can check out after the jump.
