The amount of incredible R&B coming out recently has got me feeling all sorts of sexy. While the new contemporary R&B sound relies heavily on Electronic production, that doesn’t take away from the scene – in fact some could argue the new wave is breathing new life into a genre that was losing steam.
LA based Gabe Reali has recently released his debut single, “Oceans”, and it is a solid first release in what will hopefully be a long run and successful career. Along with the single caME some remixes including this joint from K33LAN…
Quickly after pressing play, there was no question I was going to have to show some love. While Gabe croons on the vocals with an authentic and powerful performance, K33LAN flips the track with a smooth and soulful production that brings a whole new energy to the release.
Muted keys set the tone while atmospheric vocal samples, snapping percussion and bright synths pepper the track. The track picks up with some Trap infused drums and a catchy and seductive hook. While Gabe Reali questions, “How deep can we go”, the listener is pulled in and turned on through the emotive production and precision vocals.
If this is what we can expect going forward from Gabe Reali, things are about to get sexier in 2018.
