Candid Oak – The Path Forward

In Chill, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by Jeff

In Chill, Hip Hop, Zone Out by Jeff

After stirring up a massive buzz with his bizarre song and video for “Rascal”, rapper/singer/creative genius(?) RMR follows up with a new single called “Dealer”. The mysterious artist alternates between rueful vocals and rapid verses over a trap beat featuring twangy strings and a somber vibe. At first it might sound like another rapper boasting about the drug life, but in …

OZZIE – White Ferrari

In Chill, Downtempo, R&B, Remix, Trap, Zone Out by Jeff

This is the coolest thing I’ve heard in a minute. OZZIE has been one of my favorite producers for a long time now, and his new edit of Frank Ocean‘s “White Ferrari” reignites my love of his music. It’s a sedated reworking that layers and loops Frank’s vocals over a rolling trap beat, creating a melancholic vibe that’s a pleasure …

In Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, House, Zone Out by Jeff

du0 is an Australian producer that specializes in easy-listening electronic music. His new song “Come Home” is a prime example of his smooth style—featuring a subdued house beat, tantalizing acoustic guitar, and pleasantly airy vocals from fellow Aussie, Emily Coulston. Everything about this one is atmospheric and emotional, with a deceptively simplistic sound that’s all too easy to get wrapped …

My favorite song, hands down, is the delicate and sentimental “I Can’t Believe I Had You”. It features softly crooned and subtly digitized vocals, dreamy synths, and a smooth house beat. Fenn’s entire discography is great, …
