It’s been two years since Active Child released his debut album You Are All I See and he’s been relatively quite ever since outside contributing to the Adult Swim singles series. Now he’s announced a new EP called Rapor along with its new single “Subtle” featuring Rihanna’s pal, Mikky Ekko. It’s more reminiscent of some of the more mega-pop grabs off of the album especially with the addition of Mikky Ekko who is just one big solo single away from becoming the next pop superstar. It feels lazy to compare any poppy R&B song to Michael Jackson at this point but the glove still fits and damn if this doesn’t sound like something MJ could have grooved on in the early 90’s. Listen to “Subtle” here and check out the Rapor EP out October 22nd via Vagrant.
