Rising UK pop artist Zak Abel self-released his newest project One Hand On The Future late last week, a six-track EP that pairs an ambitious mix of funk, jazz, and blues against the scorching hot soul of Abel’s incredible voice. The EP’s second track, produced by Montreal based beatmaker Kaytranada, is the clear standout on One Hand On The Future, a dramatic throwback to 80s house and 90s R&B. Abel’s sweeping hooks lend a generous rush of euphoria; his spectacular range, the way his voice breaks when he’s reaching for those lofty high notes, proves this artist has the means to make it big.
Stream One Hand On The Future below and watch a video of Zak Abel rehearsing “Say Sumthin” for his upcoming live shows.
