The Unused Word - Heaven (Testa Rmx)
I am completely and utterly in love with The Unused Word. Please do yourself a favour and listen to the original as well if you prefer your indie R&B with a little more warmth.
The Unused Word - Heaven, from ∞ EP
Heavily R&B/soul/hip hop influenced electronic music or vice versa is the hot shit right now. Every self-respecting music snob now freely confesses their love for Beyoncé and goes to Hudson Mohawke shows. Somewhere inbetween, acts like Gerard and S O H N, and internationally, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, AlunaGeorge, Jessie Ware, Shlohmo or Rhye combine genres tremendously successfully. Please excuse the heavy name dropping, but I am so excited about this trend.
I am equally excited about The Unused Word, the “first lady of Duzz Down San”.
Klaim - Trapped In Spain
It’s such a ubiquitous trick to evoke summer feelings and memories of beach holidays to gain attention with a song or music video but some do it better than others and this is one of the more interesting variations of that theme.
