CURRENT: Gent Mason – “Eden”

Well this is an unexpected treat. The label Aesop, which houses SOHN (who himself is responsible for one of 2013’s best tracks, “Bloodflow”), has a new signee that fits in nicely within the label’s aesthetic. Gent Mason debuts with a slow burning and sensual tune that recalls Shlohmo and Jeremih’s team-up on “Bo Peep” earlier this year. “You give me a fever / feels so good / won’t it last forever” an unknown female vocalist sings during the chorus, which just so happens to be the catchiest thing you’ve heard this week. Mason’s vocals carry the verses, and he never raises his voice above a 3. It’s a subtle and unobtrusive introduction, leaving Gent Mason with plenty of room to grow. Drake may have “started from the bottom,” but Gent Mason is out to prove it’s preferable to start at the top, and stay there.
