Zak Abel - "Running From Myself"
I don't know where he came from but I swear in the last week or so I have been inundated by material from Zak Abel. I could not be happier about that. Turns out it was all leading up to the release of his new EP, One Hand On The Future, which is out today. Everything I've heard from the EP is worth listening to but the standout for me is definitely "Running From Myself". It builds itself up throughout, gradually adding more elements until, shortly after a calming bridge, it hits its funk climax with a sound that is reminiscent of Mark Ronson (which is always a good thing). Have a listen to "Running From Myself" and be sure to check out the entire One Hand On The Future available to stream on Abel's SoundCloud page.
