James Droll “Off Beat”

It doesn’t get much cooler than this slinky, sultry slow-burner from James Droll. “Off Beat” is an ode to his current love interest, as he indulges his pensiveness and confusion surrounding the uncertain feelings. Dissonant piano keys and plucky percussion perfectly compliment the overall feeling of being “off beat.” Everything in the song feels a step slow, in the best way. The snares seem to slap ever so slightly off beat, the way J Dilla‘s drums always felt. “Off Beat” is perfectly suited to lighting up something smokable, sitting back and letting the introspective thoughts flow.
