A few months ago, I posted about some up-and-coming artist from San Antonio, SPZRKT. While clearly influenced by the likes of The Weeknd and Frank Ocean, SPZRKT has his own, unique sound, and as I hear more of his music, he seems determined to only further differentiate himself. “Middle of Things, Beautiful Wife”, is a beautiful track that reminds me of Ocean’s “Lost” but with some more edge. Produced by dope beat-maker, Sango and remixed by Stwo, the beat is incredibly dynamic and driven. This track is unreal, as it combines a talented voice with an already beautiful beat, and remixes it all into one masterpiece. Enjoy.

I’m usually not into the whole R&B scene, especially not the emotional/sappy kind, and apart from the Weeknd and Frank Ocean, there are few singers that I really LISTEN to. The group CharlieRED, however, may be a new name for me to add to the that exclusive list. This Could Be is off of their newest mixtape entitled “Religion”, and it has a certain jazzy feel to it that I can’t escape. Produced by Cobain Ivory, the beat leaves the listener melting in their chair with a seductive upright bass and a slightly offbeat slow… monotonous…drum. Rocki Evans, the singer, is certainly no slouch himself and contrasts the deep sound perfectly. Enjoy.
I guess it’s a Jazzy Hip-Hop Sunday for me today. Just took a peep at Bill Ortiz‘s new album, Highest Wish, and came across this insanely funky song. Ortiz has played with a number of well-renowned artists including Carlos Santana. Highest Wish is a groovy R&B/Hip-Hop/Jazz album that deserves a patient look. Ortiz shreds the trumpet in “Don’t Make Me Wait” and is accompanied by some smooth rap and beautiful vocals. The track is already stuck in my head and I want to listen to it again…maybe I will…
