21: AlunaGeorge feat. Popcaan: I’m In Control

For Aluna and George the time has come for album two and they’re leading the new charge of electro R&B with Popcaan in tow. Between the duo and the dancehall snack were collaborations that led to two of the most wonderful and unappreciated dance/pop records of 2015 (‘To Ü’ with Jack Ü and Jamie xx‘s ‘I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)’ alongside Young Thug), and ‘I’m In Control’ captures well an essence of both. As wobbly future-y productions go it’s surprisingly chilled and, now they’re supposedly in control, it appears to hint at a welcome more conventionally poppy sound than Body Music for the new one. With friends like Skrillex, Diplo, Baauer, DJ Snake, and Zhu, though, anything could happen.
