Lil Silva doesn't seem to be putting many feet wrong at the moment. This was well evidenced on his recent 'Mabel' EP, hitting the spot both with or without BANKS' somnolent R&B tones. He's now put out a remix of Pretty Girls, the next single from Little Dragon's recent 'Nabuma Rubberband' album, which sways with a knowingness and a glint in the eye of not getting lost in your youth (the Nabil-directed video is – as usual! – well worth a watch).
There's no big surprises in how Pretty Girls is turned over in Lil Silva's hands, with a gentle snappy drop cut from a similar cloth to his recent EP's guitar-tinged title track, but like much of the gifted producer's best moments to date, there's a sense of soul and depth maintained here.
