AC Slater might have one of the best EPs of 2013 in Return to the Underground. We heard “Out Here” and were blown away, then put on “Gunplay” and were truly impressed. But you know how it goes. Four tracks on an EP, two bangers… the other two have to be kind of weak, right? Shut the fuck up with that talk! AC Slater’s three for three right now, with “LMLY” playing like a fond memory, blending 808 beats, Baltimore club flavor, and diva-drenched house sounds into one tasty number. Can it be July 16 already? We need the full EP, or maybe we just need to close our eyes and truly get lost in the music. Putting these tracks on, I take off my critic hat and revel in being a fan. At the end of the day, that’s all I really want to be.
