In the years since, the London-based artist has developed his style, moving from dance floor weapons into properly crafted songs. In a recent interview, he listed the likes of Jai Paul, Sampha, Flying Lotus and Timbaland as current favorites, and the influence of these artists has clearly bled into his work on his Mabel EP. The EP clearly places Lil Silva in the "alternative R&B" category, while keeping some of the ruffed elements that stood out in his earlier work.
"Don't You Love" is perhaps the highlight of the EP, with vocals from Lil Silva himself and longtime collaborator BANKS, but it's the instrumental that really stands out, as Dummy explain:
"That flappy, flangered opening guitar lick would feel more at home on a Connan Mockasin track, and when the bass and snare eventually drops in, it does so with unanticipated force and flex."
