More NSFW boudoir music selected by the London-based hip hop aficionados.
Smooth jams have been revived and redefined in the past couple of years, with artists like Jeremih and Ty Dolla $ign in the vanguard and The-Dream and R. Kelly as scene elders, overseeing the evolution of a sound that’s often as freaked-out and experimental as anything you’d hear on a mix of chin-scratching avant-techno, say. No one knows this better than Southern Hospitality, who’ve just teamed with Noisey to deliver The Sex Tape, an hour-long session that promises to be the last word in “next generation Ratchet & B”.
The mix compiles a generation of R&B artists who are thriving beneath the radar, including Tory Lanez, Kirko Bangz, Rayven Justice and a couple of cuts from TeeFLii and FACT favourite DJ Mustard, whose fusion of Bay Area hyphy and LA jerkin warranted a thorough dissection from us earlier this year.
Stream and download the mix below and check out the tracklist underneath. And if that ticks your boxes, check out Southern Hospitality’s previous mix compiling the best Texas club music of the moment.
