It seems that releasing an EP between albums is becoming the new standard among today’s more forward-thinking musicians. Though some may seem like they’re forcing it, Katy B’s Danger EP just whets our appetite for her next project. She’s joined by an all-star cast of collaborators to complement her thoughtful dance music.
Katy B teams up with Geeneus and Jessie Ware on the EP’s standout track, Aaliyah; it’s club-ready yet mournful, a nod to the late R&B singer’s mysticism. Zinc and Wiley lend some electro hip-hop vibes on the more commercial-focused Just Got Paid, while Light As A Feather upgrades Diplo’s Set It Off with hypnotizing vocals and a short but effective verse by Iggy Azalea. Finally, Jacques Greene’s skeletal sound gets some extra warmth on Danger as Katy B laments a crumbling love.
