The last few years has seen a resurgence in R&B thanks to an experimental take on the genre from the likes of How To Dress Well, The Weeknd, and James Blake. These artists are just three of a growing community of electronic-influenced soul singers, happily experimenting with a genre most people associate with chart toppers Usher and Chris Brown.
Vicktor Taiwo is the latest artist putting his own spin on modern day R&B with his single “Digital Kids.” The tune is a delicate and atmospheric wonder, with Taiwo’s digitally altered vocals the perfect foil for Londoner Felix Joseph’s haunting, minimalistic beat. The track also contains a verse from underground rapper Solomon, whose slow and methodical flow adds another element to the overall sound of the track. In short, “Digital Kids” is pure musical bliss.
