This Is Our Jam: Outer Limitz, “I Kontact”

Outer Limitz is the new R&B project from former Test Icicles member Sam Mehran. If that sentence sounds familiar, it’s because Mehran isn’t the only guy from that band to have forgone the punked-up dance of his beginnings in favor of R&B-inspired pop. Yet, while Devonte Hynes, who now records as Blood Orange, chose a sound similar to the ‘80s prom grooves of Twin Shadow, Mehran seems more interested in mixing the choppy beats of new jack swing with a touch of the lo-fi atmosphere of his past solo projects. The resulting “I Kontact” may be yet another entry to a continuously growing group of R&B-inspired indie acts, but one with an especially catchy groove. We can’t wait to hear more.
