Why do we like this?

I've fallen pretty hard for Taylor McFerrin's deeply chill new track "The Antidote," featuring Nai Palm of Hiatus Kaiyote, on his upcoming album Early Riser. The album is being produced under the Flying Lotus label Brainfeeder, which already gives you a sense of the vibe you can expect from the upcoming release.

Nai Palm's soothing, soulful vocals play smoothly over blunted electronic textures. A pallate of wet percussive pops and ambient horn samples accent the track. Taylor McFerrin, intrestingly enough, is actually the son of Bobby McFerrin, whom you probably recognize from his ubiquitous and enduring hit "Don't Worry Be Happy."

McFerrin sits largely at the production helm on this track, and as an artist, categorizes himself as part of the comically esoteric sounding but somehow appropriately titled genre "future soul." With roots nodding to hip-hop, highly processed production, progressive beats,  heavy sampling of 60s and 70s soul and jazz elements, and Nai Palm's undisputably soulful and loose vocals, I have trouble disputing the track's musical categorization despite its eyebrow-raising properties.

All genre hairsplitting aside, I really can dig on this track, and you should too. look out for Early Riser, which is slated for release in early June.
