mp3: Anthony Ellect x Capeface- Note

As a producer, Anthony Ellect is proving incapable of doing any wrong.  Even though it is still very early in his career, Anthony Ellect has managed to build up a strong collection of tracks that surpass the average soundclouder.  For his latest jam, Anthony teamed up with UK producer Capeface for the collaboration ‘Note’.  LA and the UK have some of the best scenes and talents for producers so it’s cool to see artists from both areas reaching out to each other.  Unsurprisingly, ‘Note’ does not fail to blow me away.  Although it is impossible to distinguish each individual contribution stylistically with this track, ‘Note’ is a bass-heavy, soulful, glitchy mess that is hard to stop listening to.
