Sporting Life has been on a tear of late. The former Ratking producer released the Slam Dunk Vol. II EP last month, which featured the standout collaboration with Canadian duo Evy Jane "Court Vision," but he will also be releasing Slam Dunk Vol. III next month. A track has now surfaced off that very project, "Nothing To Hide."
The first track off the upcoming third installment of the Slam Dunk trilogy has Sporting Life presenting a melodic slightly downtempo, layered track complete with an electonic snare and recurring high hat. Dev Hynes (a.k.a. Blood Orange) kicks off the vocals with this singnature muted crooning, fulfilling hook duties perfectly. As can be expected from the dynamics within Ratking, Wiki adds some needed grit to the track, contrasting surprisingly well with Hynes' hushed voice. New York connecting on different levels sure can sound nice.
Slam Dunk Vol. III will include three other tracks, all basketball themed titles, "Jumpball," "Espy," as well as a Babyfather remix of "Nothing To Hide." The EP will be avaialble on November 14, via Letter Racer.
