HAICH – PARIAH

British producer Haich has been far too quiet of late.  Thankfully, he’s breaking the silence with a new track entitled ‘Pariah’.  Released via RAGS, the track borrows from Garage as much from it does the post-Dubstep of Mount Kimbie & co, with delicate vocals setting the whole thing off.  Stream below via SoundCloud.
