Listen/Watch : Bad Gyal enlists Florentino for blistering new single ‘Blink’

A high-energy splicing of dancehall and reggaeton, ‘Blink’ marks the first time Bad Gyal has collaborated with recent Mixpak signee and Manchester latin club specialist Florentino. Maximising the producer’s hard-edged style, Bad Gyal rides the instrumental’s full-bodied percussion with highly infectious vocal lines that help the track ripple with polyrhythms. Gliding between ominous, slow-burning bass and intense kick drums – the track merges the forward-thinking melancholy of Bad Gyal with the more immediate, club ready sound that she has also become synonymous with.
The first taste of her forthcoming second mixtape due for release February 23rd, ‘Blink’ marks a huge advance in the duality of Bad Gyal’s sound, taking her progressive approach to party music and carving it further into her own lane. The rest of her forthcoming project embodies this hybrid of sounds too, recruiting the production talents of Jam City, Dubbel Dutch, D33J, the aforementioned Florentino, Paul Marmota, Fake Guido and more to create something emotionally visceral, rhythmically impactful and most of all, completely unique.
