A producer cooking up a masterful beat and inviting a guest emcee or two to spit over it is a common occurrence. But what about a producer inviting an R&B/pop artist instead of an emcee? Well, those cuts are few and far between. Bucking this trend with Aware is Cali producer Sean Kongery, who crafts a smooth beat perfect for the right crooner; Booth newcomer Elias is the man for the job. Elias’s floating, airy vocals and feel-good lyrics work hand in hand with Sean’s breezy, yet understated boardwork to form a refreshing, carefree R&B jam. This record isn’t attached to a larger project, but those who like what they’re hearing are encouraged to check out Kongery’s last feature, September’s Paper.
