Paris is home to Stwo (pronounced ‘Stew’), an extremely talented producer who put his own personal spin on Sango and SPZRKT’s ”Middle Of Things, Beautiful Wife.” Stwo’s interpretation takes on an undeniable R&B vibe. The track walks Sango’s silky vocals over a more moody type of beat. Stwo subtly loops Sango’s hook on top of deep pulsing bass to create the mellow feel that perpetuates the entire song. This unique remix deviates from the original enough to stand out but still preserves the idea that Sango and SPZRKT are trying to convey.
This guy can do no wrong. Mr. Carmack is on his game 24/7. In Stroke It Baby, he samples vocals from Aaliyah’s Rock The Boat. If that isn’t enough to get you to click the play button, I don’t know what is. Mr. Carmack’s distinct drum patterns are present here with plenty of fuzzy undertones that do nothing but accentuate the 90′s R&B singer’s soothing verses.

Last year I responded to a job ad on Hypebeast.com. The ad called for creative bloggers and writers willing to contribute to a new type of eZine. Over a year later, I was offered a position with the startup site. I’m honored and excited to be able to be part of the team. Be sure to head over to milkin.it and check out the top post. I’ll be cross-posting some reviews I do for the site on here.
My first review is about Banks and her jam, This Is What It Feels Like.
Imagine falling into an effortless sleep and slipping into a dream where the calming vibes of Lauryn Hill meet The Weeknd’s longing melodies. That would bring you to the lovely artist who calls herself Banks. That’s it, just Banks. In her single, “This Is What It Feels Like,” Banks perfectly describes her poetic view of love. After teaching herself to play on a toy piano at the age of 14, Banks continued to use music as a way to express her self proclaimed feelings of being a misfit. She needs to be on everyone’s radar as an artist to watch. She’s already offered some fantastic music for 2013, and I personally can’t wait to see what else she’s got up her sleeves for us. Not only is she gorgeous, she loves to connect with people. I mean the girl put her phone number up on Facebook.
Be sure to give “This Is What It Feels Like” a few spins as well as “Warm Water.”
