One Track Mind: Rick Rab’s Prance

Standout Track: No. 3, the abstractly soulful “I Got U,” which weaves peripatetic percussion around glitzy synth figures and an ’80s-inflected female vocal sample. Despite its obvious dance-music elements, it’s really a freaky head-nodder—as are many of the cuts on Prance, which Rick Rab says will be released before the end of the year.
