It’s time to get familiar with a new leader in alternative R&B. Brooklyn-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Cautious Clay’s discography to date has included just covers, but his take on the work of both Billie Ellish and Tori Y Mor was enough to get the tastebuds ticking for his standout blend of modern soul and ambient production hallmarks. ‘Cold War’ blends poignant word play with a harrowing and lovesick spin on the modern R&B sound, setting Cautious Clay up to be one of the most anticipated North American newcomers of 2017 so far.

WOOOOAH mindblown. We just featured a new track from TastyTreat last week, and since then they’ve┬áreturned with yet another incredibly produced, and incredibly different piece of sonic art, “Summer (Don’t Go).” An indie dance vintage vibe dripping in lighthearted soulful lyrics reminiscing on Summer’s inevitable┬ákiss goodbye. I am a huge fan.

“Summer (Don’t Go)” comes as the fourth release on Lowly Palace’s urban imprint: Lowly.

The trp – Eagle

Sep 21 2017

R&B as a genre tends to fall into generational ‘safe spots,’ but every once in a while an exceptional act comes along and crushes the lull. For 2017, that act has very much been The trp. The self-profession ‘surreal R&B’ trio has been lacing the marketing with intricately layered jams for a good couple of years now, but hit a brand new high corutesy of ‘Eagle.’ With soul you could sink your teeth into and beautifully minimalistic instrumentation, the track sets anticipation for their forthcoming SOAK EP at an all time high, proving there are some new and exciting shades to the R&B world for 2017.

Beautifully work by Moods with this soul-tinged new single. “Truth” featuring Beau Nox hits the heart in all the right places and sets the mood for some well-deserved relaxation. The lead track from his forthcoming debut album, “Truth” is out now via Boogie Angst.

VALENTINE & Rob Araujo take an already perfect alternative r&b song, Lana Del Rey & The Weeknd’s “Lust For Life,” and morph it into something dreamy and electronic. The synth driven production adds a high level of danceability to the iconic collaboration and I hope to see this on an official remix package in the future!
