A year after releasing his debut EP, Colorway, Destin Conrad has returned with his new EP, Satin.
The nine-track effort includes the lead single “Unpredictable” featuring Kiana Ledé, plus the follow-up track “Day Party.” Ambré contributed vocals and co-production on the latter, which Louie Lastic also helped produce.
Satin’s club-friendly opener, “On 10,” offers a megamix of noodling, warm horns, and loping drums as Conrad looks to meet a friend on the dance floor for an illuminating night.
On “It’s Yours,” Conrad leans into straight-up R&B, stepping into a romantic savior role to an entangled lover he cannot help but spoil. Meanwhile, the smoothly flowing “Nobody Knows” has a sneaky link vibe.
Rising artist Jean Deaux makes a guest appearance on the title track, a distinctive homage to the 2000s R&B.
Kehlani, who Conrad supported on the Blue Water Road Trip Tour, co-wrote “Down Bad.”

As noted above, Satin is the follow-up to Conrad’s 2021 EP Colorway.
Since then, Conrad has racked up recognition as a featured artist, working with Duckwrth, Phabo, Mack Keane and ESTA, and most recently, Dylan Sinclair. He joined the latter Canadian act for “Open (Remix),” on which Jvck James also appeared.
