Although we try to listen to every song sent our way, it’s hard to listen to all of them due to the sheer amount of them we receive each day. And even though we much prefer email submissions, I took notice of MATTHEW II after his succinctly crafted tweet, “If you’re into edgy, well-produced, dark R&B give me a listen.”
Upon clicking on his link for Bare Mtn, my ears were immediately sent onto a journey through a winding dark R&B road of sensual grit. Initially the track starts out with a carnal 80’s soundscape with a falsetto reminiscent of Prince, then things morph into a edgy contemporary jam just after Matthew yells, “where the bed at?”
The New Jersey “Dark&B” artist has also just released a catchier, more consistent track entitled Burn All Night which you can listen to below!
