Hip-Hop has always seemed to garner both criticism and praise due to the way in which it evolves from decade to decade, but if you really want to talk about a genre evolving then look no further than R&B. No longer content with belting out moving ballads about the highs and lows of love it seems that a lot of R&B singers have begun to blend multiple genres. A great example of this new-found style is Experimental, a stand out selection from Atlanta crooner Muzi‘s newest project release. On Experimental the artist’s vocal on the record is as addictively soulful as the heavy 80’s electro-like production, which comes courtesy of fellow Atlantan and longtime collaborator Shoden!1. If Muzi and Shoden!1’s experimental mix (pun intended) caught your interest then be sure to check out the singer’s Somnolence Vol. II, available for free stream and download at The DJBooth.
