Freeze-Tag is the solo creation of multi-instrumentalist and electronic maestro Marcus Alan Ward. Hailing from Cleveland, Ward draws from a wide range of influences from music and visual art. He's just as likely to be influenced by Warhol or Matisse as he is by whatever he's listening to at the moment. After playing in a number of post-hardcore bands, he drew on his diverse resources in jazz, soul, hip-hop and electronic music to pursue new territory as Freeze-Tag. He released his first single last year, and today, we get a free download of his newest one, 'Eskimo.'

'Eskimo' is a slowly meandering, ponderous ambient track. It fuses together electronic textures and a female vocal loop to create seductive soundscape that could easily score a movie calling for plenty of intrigue.

Of the new single, Ward tells Diffuser.fm, "I like to eat jazz and listen to candy. 'Eskimo' is candy."

We agree -- if jazz is like eating veggies (good for you, but not always fun), 'Eskimo' is pure ear candy. Grab it below.
