“14 Tracks of screwed R&B emotions”

Over the last few years a wave of emotionally skewed R&B and avant HipHop has captured the imagination of the underground. The scene has nurtured some of the most fascinating new sounds to have emerged from any genre, soaking up memes from hyper-commercial '80s R&B to classic 4AD shoegaze ambience and screw music, mixing them with a supremely sly intent. At the forefront of this style are Tri Angle Records, who've kindly supplied us with an awesome, previously unreleased exclusive from Stalker. With two singles and a brilliant set of Lindsay Lohan covers to their credit, the label's ghettogothic sensitivities have made for a special start, with an incredible release from How To Dress Well lined up for early next year. At the other end of the spectrum, Zola Jesus and Nick Turro aka Nika & Rory investigate a brashly contemporary and far more visceral take on R&B/Trance-pop, while Lil B brings it all back to ground zero with his #based rap phenomena. Existing in their very own interzone we also have the altar-pop sacrifices of Hippos In Tanks, from the suspended beliefs of Laurel Halo, to avant R&B star D'eon, while loosely connected Brooklynite, Autre Ne Veut, sums up that most elusive, fleeting sense of emotion with his eponymous hypnagogic masterpiece - 'OMG'.

“Guilty Pleasure”

It seems as if I've been looking for something of this calibre and level of curating for some time.

As much as I love sharing music as producer and DJ, this site is so beautiful that I almost want to keep it to myself.

Thank you kindly.

“No inclusion of "iqlusion" -- what gives??”

The Stalker track "iqlusion" can be previewed, but when I attempt to purchase the track -- there is an error page stating that the track is no longer available. What happens if you try to buy the full 14 tracks here?

Hey there Sum J, the Stalker track can only be bought as part of the full selection, we have no permission to sell it individually.
