Prepare Your Vibeout Playlists for Swaine’s Soulful Catharsis-Spilling Mix CANYON INTERLUDE

Canadian artist Swaine dropped their latest hazy vibeout album DUNES on April 30th. You might want to prepare your vibe out RnB Hip Hop playlists for the mellow catharsis-spilling tracks right about now.

While each of the tracks is a soulfully expressive connectable mix, there’s no better introduction to Swaine’s accessibly sweet style than CANYON INTERLUDE. Within the layers of the mix which was deftly produced by elkvio you’ll find nuances of Lo-Fi Hip Hop, Trap, Indie, and Soul giving the track universal appeal. And with the lyrics unravelling like Urban poetry, you’d be hard-pressed to find a Hip Hop mix which parallels the amount of soul, ingenuity, and style.

You can check out Swaine’s track CANYON INTERLUDE for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.

Wyatt Roberts – Hate My Friends: Genre-Crushing Urban Alt Indie

Indie RnB Soul Pop artist Wyatt Roberts dropped their latest album “Hate My Friends” on January 3rd and made RnB Pop more melodic than ever.

You’ll hear plenty of urban/alternative crossover tracks on the airwaves already, yet Wyatt Roberts has firmly put his own infectiously sweet stamp down on in true pioneering style.

While each track is as evocatively captivating as the last, there’s no better introduction than the title track. The title track will allow you to imagine what Simple Plan would have sounded like if they incorporated Indie Post Punk, and RnB Trap into their sound. And that may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s easy to see that there will be plenty of Alt Pop fans who see the ingenuity which has been weaved into Hate My Friends.

While it feels like Hate My Friends would have been a stronger track if the lyrics ran a little cleaner. It’s still an incredible track which I’d recommend to anyone who is always o the lookout for something a little different to add to their playlists.

You can check out Hate My Friends via Spotify and iTunes.

P3G Trap – Drippin My Stain: Unapologetically Fresh Indie Trap

Whether you love or hate mumble rap, there’s no denying that P3G Trap’s latest drop Drippin My Stain is as fresh as it gets in the Hip Hop arena. Whilst in points it felt that there was a little too much going on in the mix to keep up with the lyrical flow (or the beat for that matter), you were still sucked into the chaos of the mix and the admiration of P3G Trap’s relentless rap flow.

The momentum that the track carries is almost dizzying, and the South Carolina based indie artist’s ability to create so much hype stands as testament to the artist stylishly resounding talent when it comes to Hip Hop.

How they managed to pull the multi-layered beats together is almost beyond comprehension, yet, I’m assuming it had a lot to do with producer 706Hitz’ deft touch, every pitch sat at the perfect level to allow each impounding beat to almost leave you feeling bruised.

You can check out P3G Trap’s latest single Drippin My Stain which dropped June 17th for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
