These days there are a lot of so called 'experimental R&B producers' who are combining electronic beats with R&B vocals. My favorite is Jacques Greene. In 2011 he released "Another Girl" and sampled Ciara's "Deuces". That song introduced me to this new genre that I'm still into.
I'm looking forward to his upcoming EP Phantom Vibrate, which is out April 28th via LuckyMe. "No Excuse", the lead track, is another great mix of Greene's signature production, flipping R&B vocals over shimmering electronic beats. If you like Greene's earlier work, you will not be disappointed!
