Lee Clarke’s ‘Evaporate’ sits in a unique category of single. As complexly textured and detailed as it is precise in its tone and pristine as an article of beatmaking, ‘Evaporate’ sees Clarke joined by Ivy Sole and Kingsley Ibeneche, two of the most exciting Philadelphia-area artists.

A choir of resampled scrawling vocals circulates like smoke in and out of Kingsley Ibeneche’s gently spinning lyrics. Small snappy percussion pops in the stereo field like brief lightning until piano chords bring a downward turn, settling to dust. Ivy Sole’s entry hits like a storm, matched by warbled 808 subwoofer pressure. The song closes elegiacally, with reverence: hopeful, reaching.

'Evaporate’ is the follow-up to Clarke’s Off Nights EP for Astro Nautico. Clarke has executive produced much of the music for Astro Nautico’s ongoing Atlantics X mutual aid campaign, including Kingsley Ibeneche, Jasmine Cassell, KillerWhale, as well as a slew of other artists in Philadelphia and beyond. Clarke’s next production to be published will be Kingsley Ibeneche’s single ‘So Kind,’ due 10/2 on Astro Nautico. A music video for Evaporate, directed by Josh Finck is due in mid-September.
