Eclectic producer TroyBoi calls on Nigerian vocalist Adekunle Gold for assistance on his latest single, “Tranquilizer.” The mellow track features spacey, reverb-laden production that gives Gold plenty of room for melodic freedom. Its smooth flow paired with simple, yet impactful elements makes the composition a fitting play in a wide array of settings.
“Tranquilizer” adds to TroyBoi’s steady flow of tunes he’s produced in 2019 since joining OWSLA, highlighted by his V!BEZ, Vol. 3 release and a pair of Skrillex collaborations. “Tranquilizer” marks a switch from the tight, sample heavy production that TroyBoi has generally crafted, but a change of pace from an artist with such a wide skill set is anything but unexpected. It will be interesting to see further spaces he explores.
