CharlestheFirstOne of the more impressive finds at Burning Man came in the form of 18-year-old newcomer CharlestheFirst, who recently signed to Street Ritual. With some high-profile sets, and a string of post-Burn and Decomp dates in NorCal that won't let that dust settle, we're impressed with the future bass, chill-hop, and experimental trap we've heard from Charles Ingalls.

Today, we premiere the title track from his forthcoming Roots EP, which will drop later this month. "Roots" is a melancholy downtempo tune with a couple of super bassy twists that we weren't expecting. It's a hot record from someone so young. We're already expecting big things from this kid.

Catch him tonight at Stilldreamin at Barfly in Sacramento, CA, tomorrow night at the Street Ritual showcase in Oakland, and then he heads back to Reno on Saturday at 1UP.
