Since dropping his latest album, No Poison, No Paradise, late last year, Detroit rapper/producer Black Milk has maintained a rather steady release schedule. That includes Glitches in the Break, a six-song EP that hit shelves for Record Store Day, standalone singles like “What It’s Worth”, and the Slum Village collaboration “We On The Go”. Today, he delivers another new track with “Detroit’s New Dance Show”.

For those unfamiliar with the history of local Detroit television, the song draws a title and inspiration from the popular ’80s dance show. Quite appropriately, then, Black Milk relies heavily on EDM and dance music for his production, seguing from clips of the show into a furious blend of bloated synths, menacing bass, and crunchy, four-on-the-floor beats. Luckily, the dance floor homage doesn’t extend to the lyrics (could you imagine rhymes about popping and locking?), as Black Milk instead delivers an enthusiastic stream of consciousness that further magnifies the brooding soundscape.

Listen in below:

Black Milk will further bolster his catalog when he releases his next full-length LP, tentatively titled If There’s a Hell Below, sometime later this year.
