New York-based duo Memba have just dropped “Middle Man,” their first single to be released independent of any label. Chopped and screwed hip-hop gives a dark and misty feel when spun around bass-heavy electropop. Vibrant synths bounce atop vocals from British rapper Asher Don, the track’s featured artist. Bursting with battery-powered drive, the lyrics speak to the corruption of an industry of middle men profiting off hardworking artists.
