Donovan Lowe – Feel The Same: Contemporary Urban R&B

All you 6lack and Frank Ocean fans (and I know you are legions) gather round. The Bay Area R&B recording artist Donovan Lowe has a juicy suggestion for your “Sadboi” playlist.

“Feel The Same” (featuring Young Al) has such a bizarre production, this a leftfield take on today’s R&B, presenting a more dangerous, wilder side of contemporary urban music, just like The Weeknd did in his first trilogy. The production of this thing is a gun; when listening on headphones you are being bombarded by this sarcastic beat from left and right.

This artist has all the potential to blow up any time. This is cutting-edge music, without any unnecessary technical blah-blahs, it is short and to the point. And there’s a wide market to feast upon it. Even though the impression one might get from Donovan’s appearance could be he is leaning towards a more old-school R&B thing, like Anthony Hamilton. However, this is so 2019-2020 music.

“Feel the Same” (featuring Young Al) is included in Donovan Lowe debut EP called “Loving U In Secret”. Stream it the song

Terrence turk Robinson – Hold On: Soulfully Composed R&B Trap

Christian & Gospel singer-songwriter Terrence turk Robinson has recently released their second single “Hold On (To His Word)”. And it’s safe to say that I’ve never a heard a more soulful contemporary R&B-laced Trap track.

Whatever your religious leanings, Terrence turk Robinson’s soulful magnetism won’t fail to resonate when you hit play on their good vibe hits which have been orchestrated to strengthen faith. Nick Cave once said that atheists could never make good songwriters, after listening to Hold On, I may just be inclined to agree with him.

Sure, the harmonic vocals are pleasing, and the beats contain plenty of lush hooks, but the intrinsically enamouring soulful sentiment in Hold On is what really allows this track to hit hard.

 DNigel Feat-Drakes – Forever You: Lucidly Soothing Ambient Hip Hop

Washington, US-Based artist and producer DNigel has recently dropped their most ambiently immersive single yet “Forever You” featuring Drakes.

It may only be a short and sweet lucid offering of wavy downtempo R&B-infused Hip Hop, but it’s still extremely efficacious at drawing you into the resonantly soothing reverb-laden lush mix. The female vocals ethereally hover atop of the tentatively captivating instrumental progressions in perfect synergy.

I can’t say that I’ve encountered many soundscapes which manage to simultaneously resonate as soulful and haunting. But what I am unequivocally sure of is that DNigel has a deft mastery over the production of smooth and sonorous urban tracks.

Alt R&B Artist The Vice Owl Drops Their Emotively Bruising Single “Where Did She Go?”

The Vice Owl’s latest single “Where Did She Go” follows on from the release of their first two singles “She Don’t Wanna Know” and “Darling Is an Angel”. Each of the R&B Alt Pop singles holds a pensive mirror up to the impact of substance abuse.

While it’s nice to pretend that substance abuse isn’t rampant and tearing lives apart, the Vice Owl lyrically locks into the disparity and the despair which comes as a consequence. Where Did She Go is the final chapter of the tale of the drug-fuelled nightmare, and the up and coming artist didn’t hold back with the striking imagery.

The vocals echo with melancholy and the soundscape offers cavernous amounts of reverb on the emotively-charged instrumentals, Where Did She Go is a track which definitely won’t fail to resonate.

You can check out Where Did She Go which was released on September 20th for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Fitch Means – “Millions” ft. King BreZe: Soulfully Fresh R&B

R&B Soul artist Fitch Means dropped their latest single “Millions” on July 27th, and it’s already well on its way to becoming a viral hit.

With Millions, Fitch Means found the perfect balance between offering an accessible soundscape and treating the listener to an indisputably fresh contemporary aural experience.

With elements of Pop, R&B, and Hip Hop all weaved into the vibrant up-vibe multi-layered mix, Fitch Means definitely didn’t fail to stamp down their signature sound with Millions; and the charisma practically drips from it.

Even though Fitch Means is more than capable of holding his own with the harmonic versing, he brought in King BreZe to ensure that Millions was as unforgettably dynamic as possible.
