Allan Malabanan’s work as LUSTBASS has laid down the framework for all things surreptitiously sensual. He recently gifted us with his latest instrumental joint, “Vital Transformation,” which will soon feature vocals, according to his Facebook page. It opens indulgently with a horn section, nonetheless, and skims off with skittish beats, lumped with textured synths and fretting claps – this guy sure knows how to build up. It picks up the tempo, accentuated with a risqué electronic guitar riff a la Dev Hynes. For someone who has already given us the adequately titled ‘XXX’ last year, LUSTBASS stretches the foreplay game a little more with this soaked-up ditty.
