The past few days I've been reminiscent over the 20015-2016 future beats / alternative r&b / soul trap days of SoundCloud. I lost touch with the genre, but those dark, bass-heavy lush beats are some of the best discoveries I've had since starting the project.

Speaking of gems, here's something from Souletiquette's 2017 Ingenious Pleasure vol 3 crafted by San Francisco-based producer Dailon. A solid XXYYXX vibe throughout the track, with bass as throbbing as one could endure. What I love about the genre is how beautifully trap's aggressiveness clashed with the r&b vibe. Dailon did hell of a job sampling Aaliyah's "Rock The Boat" in order to bring that sexy feel to the surface.

Damn, those were the days.
