Most producers who stretch themselves across multiple disparate genres sacrifice some quality in their overall production acumen, but the few who excel at this difficult task often elevate themselves to new levels. It’s fair to say that Montreal duo Grown Folk have achieved the latter, succeeding in the dance music world (with an EP out on Templar Sound and joint work with LOL Boys) and proving influential in the hip hop world (with production work for Main Attrakionz). Next week (Feb 11), the duo will release The Boat EP on Icee Hot (which you can preview here), but to add some icing to the already tantalizingly sweet cake, they’ve let loose “Cornelia”, a light-hearted attempt at the rave sounds of yore. Stream and download “Cornelia” below and look out for The Boat on February 11.
