R&B has taken a course for the worse over the past couple years. Despite immense talents (i.e Erykah Badu), many materials for many R&B have lacked depths and intellectual aspects. For this reason, many have shun away what would it an obvious and natural feeling of fondness for R&B. However, that doesn’t mean it can be a good party anthem.
Icons such as R.Kelly have made a name for themselves, not for the depth of their music, but for their natural born talent of smooth voices and fun, easy-going materials (Ignition Remix? Bump that anywhere, and people will get down.) to win people over, and was successfully might I add.
With the colossal popularity of electronic music these days, it is imperative to separate the actual talents and the wannabes, y’know, for the sake of having tastes.
There have been countless cases of incorporating R&B into electronic/bass music, and some succeeded (Pretty Lights, Gramatik, etc). but many have also failed.
Falcons is a LA-based producer that has constantly been impressing the fans of R&Bass with his brilliant execution and energetic styles, and now, he has returned with a remix EP full of BANGERS.
Introducing: FALC☯NS REMIXXES VOL. 3
Falcons has received very positive receptions to a point that Diplo’s label Mad Decent has taken notice.
This EP contains remixes of well-known R&B songs from Brandy x Monica, Ciara and J.Cole, reminding why Falcons is such a beast in the game.
It is extremely difficult for me to pick out a favorite from this EP because I am head over heels with this EP, but I would have to say it is a tie between the remixes for Tweet’s ‘Oops’ and J. Cole’s ‘Call Your Name.’
Without any exaggeration, I have been listening to these songs obsessively since the EP’s release yesterday.
Just the right amount of easy vibes of R&B with high energy trap beats topped off with a little bit of bass, this EP is one of the best releases of this Spring/Summer, and I am very excited to see Falcons getting the recognition he deserves.
