“Get Bigger/Do U Luv,” the second pre-album single from NxWorries, finds producer Knxwledge cutting a track more in the soul music ballpark of partner Anderson .Paak.
Anderson does his usual thing — a knockout on the vocals — but the beat, sporting a neo-soul bump, is what demands notice. It’s walking bass and crisp snare give a more lush sound than the dusty, beat tape-derived aesthetic that Knxwledge typically deals in. There’s a syrupy quality to the song that suggests something like an edgier Anthony Hamilton tune.
The last forty-odd seconds (present in the streaming version, but absent from the Soundcloud upload) find Paak’s vocals stacked via multitrack, sizzling against the hiss of what sounds like an analog drum machine. It’s sweaty, funky and hopefully a suggestion of what the album will entail. Check it out below.
