As one of the buzziest young stars in the house music universe right now, Mall Grab's sample-heavy, unreleased tracks are rightfully fawned over. First there was his 2016 sample-house anthem "Can't," which was scooped up by South London's Church label and pressed to grey marble vinyl to widespread acclaim. Around the same time, another anonymous heater began surfacing in his jubilant DJ sets, radio mixes for the likes of RinseFM where he had his own holiday residency, and of course on YouTube. Centered around a cheeky sample of "Where Are My Panties?"—a skit off Outkast's seminal double album _Speakerboxxx/The Love Below—_and and some echoey, synth bleeps, the cut eventually was discovered to be titled "Catching Feelings."
Finally after receiving its own lovable birth name, the track got its own home: a 12" for Unknown to the Unknown's Hot Haus sub-label, by the name of Pool Party Music. In celebration—or is it a baptism?—of the record's long awaited digital release, we're souped to be hosting an exclusive stream of the track here on THUMP. As if it's any surprise, the rest of the record rules too. Stream below, and if you live in NYC, grab the last few tickets to Mall Grab's NYC debut in April. Catch us there front right.
