The trick to seduction is being confident and subtle, and Ade Lasode’s new single, “.Mine.”, lies at the intersection of clarity and obscurity. The beat she produces piles up on a submerged techno rhythm with a loose weave of murmurs and ambient swirling synth lines that bath her vocals in mystery and allure. But her lyrics, “I’m Telling You Now That I’m Leaving With You Tonight/ You Better Let Go Of Your Fears and Your Cares Tonight” are almost impatient.
Though her words express certainty and confidence in her feelings, they are spun through a dizzying digital echo chamber. Streaks of drum, the occasional sharp-edge bass guitar and Ade Lasode’s voice bob through the murk, and make “.Mine.” soulful, grounding and expressive.
