can’t stop listening
XXYYXX - TIED2U
16 year old producer Marcel Everett just released his second album. The self-titled work is extremely cohesive, especially for such a young producer. When he’s not using TLC samples, he enlists the help of two great female vocalists - Steffaloo and London’s Anneka. On both tracks the vocals add wonders to the tracks Marcel has produced.
TIED2U, however, is the track that jumped out at me the most. Those forlorn Jon Brion vocals, dipped in molasses. It washes over you, and drags you to a place of wistful introspection. Already, at the age of 16, Marcel is transcending mere beats, and getting the listener to feel something.
