Xander The Great – Cold Skin [London, UK]

Electronic / R&B / New Wave

Anyone else thinking low budget sci-fi?

This R&B duo has been one of the up and coming musical acts to watch since the release of their single Bloodhound a few months back. And yesterday their new single Cold Skin pretty much blew me away again.The face of R&B is no longer dominated solely by musicians such as Usher, Ne-Yo and Akon. (Yes we’re talking about the era of black musicians in outrageous suits and shades) But is slowly evolving to a more diverse and intricate genre that consists of more than repetitive beats and smooth falsettos, but also includes electronic and soul. This new R&B is represented by artists such as Frank Ocean, Drake, The Weeknd, and Xander The Great. Nevertheless, very little is known about them but I’m sure that’ll be changing pretty soon. I smell a new EP coming around, follow their soundcloud here.
