San Francisco-based producer Brogan Bentley is set to return to Matthewdavid’s Leaving label with his debut LP, The Snake, next month. Plucked from the forthcoming 12-track effort is “Smoke,” an astutely named beat which wraps smokey string chords around a slightly stuttered pattern of hats and snares, to which the occasional footwork-like fill of tuned kicks and rapid rim shots are added. Before Bentley’s The Snake LP—which, according to the artist himself, is said to be “a sonic documentation of coming into new skin, living in it, and shedding it”—drops on November 11, vocal-led and equally smokey LP cut “The Difference” is also available to stream after the jump.
