Coming back from the Great Black Music exhibition, I'm into Rhythm & Blues tunes tonight. "V052" by 20syl has just the right amount of R&B and Hip-Hop influences. Add Soul vocals and you have quite the perfect track. The only reproach that can be made is that it is way too short. Though, there's this French proverb that might explain its briefty. It goes like "Toute les bonnes choses ont une fin"...

The song features on the Summer in Jakarta compilation, curated by Jakarta Records and available in free download in a few days. It comes along Mura Masa's track "Miss You" that Ivo already told you about. Be sure to check the rest of the compilation.
