And above all, Smith is a fan-pleaser. He's given away plenty of free music, and this year, his planned output is serious. He's set to release new EPs on March 2, June 15, and October 12 -- but the only one that's done is the first. The last two will be completely written and recorded just a few weeks before they're due.
As a taster, here's "I Can See It In Your Face," a track from the first EP, Making Up a Changing Mind. Check the moment around 2:30 where the whole things builds up to a funky, bass-driven breakdown. Horn riffs and hip-hop vocal samples amp up the soul on the rest of it.
