1v1 is a seductively alluring and provocative gem I was lucky enough to preview some time ago, and it’s with much pleasure I get to finally share the sultry tune with you today. The smooth track is a new release by Rochester future soul artist mdnt (midnight), whose velvety vocals melted me the moment I first heard his R&B crooning. 1v1 is produced by Toronto’s The Theorist, whom I’ve featured previously with much gusto, due to his adept skillfulness at creating dazzling shadowy and downtempo electronic soundscapes. 1v1 is certainly a grooving slow jam you’ll want to put on your next mixtape for your bae, with its honeyed sweetness and sexy nuance. It’s like a steamy mix of D’Angelo, Frank Ocean, and inc. or How To Dress Well.
My new song I produced for @itsmdnt premiered on indie shuffle today. Check it out and give it lots of 💛💙💜💚❤️💚💜💙💛 http://www.indieshuffle.com/mdnt-1v1-prod-the-theorist/
Turning it down, a lot, with this foggy, sensual track Down 4 U, from Toronto’s The Theorist. On the seductive and texture heavy track, he samples Brandy’s 1994 hit I Wanna Be Down, which I haven’t heard in so dang long that I had the hardest time placing a finger on which track it was, considering the hundreds of tunes muddling my mind at any one moment. The wobbly, heady Down 4 U is a gorgeous, slick listen, brilliantly crafted and full of lush opulence, fading softly with such tender, jazzy piano touches at the end.
