Ningen's latest beat, "Existence", is a refreshing, upbeat, and funky track that makes you wish Summer was already here so we could lay back and forget the world, just for a few minutes.

One thing that really stands out to me though is not the plucky guitar riff, or the bouncy bass, but the almost liquid-sounding keys that are sprinkled over the top of the first few bars. I can only describe this as a contradiction, as it's both slightly out of place but also comfortably at home in the whole arrangement.

For the most part, what Ningen has created here is a perfect amuse-bouche ahead of the Spring and Summer seasons.
