Edgar the Beatmaker – Deezle (ft. Jesse James & Rago Foot)

Despite having been on less songs than I can count on my hand, Jesse James is one of the most exciting rappers coming out of the UK right now.  Teaming up with the equally laid-back Rago Foot, James hops on a jazzy and downtempo beat from Edgar the Beatmaker (another pen name of Archie Marshall a.k.a. King Krule a.k.a. Lankslacks a.k.a. DJJD Sports) on “Deezle”.  Like his features on “Trashy” and “Meddling Loops”, James’ lyrics lean toward smoked-out poetics that move at their on hushed and unhurried pace.  Edgar himself shows up on the chorus of the track to take on parts of Billy Holiday’s “Lover, Come Back to Me”.
