Scratchtheblock.com born with the main aim to spread and support quality black music!
Ok,ok, maybe the term “black music” sounds too general but we conceive black music as a huge kaleidoscope of genres that encompasses hip-hop (old-school in particular), jazz-hop,jazz,neo-soul,r&b….but we can’t overlook experimental,avant-garde sonorities that the current music scene has to offer: future soul,nu-jazz,alt-r&b and downtempo.
Scratchtheblock.com is an “off limit zone” for rock,house,pop,pure electronic music,techno and the list goes on!
Are we close-minded? Maybe…but we’re trying to create a place where people can find the right vibe,the right music,the right rhythm produced,played and performed by artists that deserve your attention!
Today we spotlight Ohio native and L.A-based duo TwinKids.
We stumbled upon their recent treat titled ACBTY and wow…..although we ‘re not admirers of electro-pop music , in this case we have to admit the track sounds eargasmic.
Recorded in Chi-Town, ACBTY is an alt-r&b love song skilfully produced using stretched orchestral samples from old recordings, voluptuous and downtempo rhythm (that evoke panty dropper music a la Maxwell!!) with seductive laid back vocals nestled in an electronic frame.
Listen closely and let us know your impressions!
