Live at Drip Drop - LA

My friends over at Drip Drop Los Angeles invited me out to play Experimental RnB at their night. I asked myself what Experimental RnB might sound like, and this mix was the result.

RnB is in a period of stagnation, but Rap has been extremely dynamic over the last 5-10 years. Rap has become world-weary and dark: sick of the success, over the fame, but unable to quit. With few exceptions though, RnB has yet to go fully post-apocalyptic. I hope that will change.

My vision of the next wave of RnB is dense, synthetic and adventurous. This mix is almost a tour of how it might sound, from spastic euphoric moments to bleak, icy soundscapes. Many of these tunes are instrumentals, but I would like to imagine them with vocals that have yet to be recorded. I want the next wave of RnB artists to be reared on a diet of Blade Runner, Vangelis, and UK Grime.

NO TRACK LIST - but featuring tunes from S-X, Gatekeeper, Anti-G, Om Unit, Dakimh aka Kuedo aka Jamie Vex’d, Skinnz, Krampfhaft, Fatima Al Qadiri, Jacques Greene, and Rustie. Get at me if you want to know what any of the tunes are.

Thanks to the Drip Drop crew!
