ill.selection "Grown and Sexy in Outer Space" downtempo mixtape

Download mix here

The Ill.selection neo-downtempo mixtape

This tape is a collection of third-stream soulful instrumentals and vocal tracks for a new school audience. These beats are drenched in Sun-Ra/Mothership Connection Black cosmic vibes, golden-era Hip Hop approaches, and 80’s R&B. For this mix, I drew tracks that are throwbacks to synthesizer driven funk, 80’s electronic samples, atmospherics, and crunchy R&B handclaps. If this were a club, it’d be “grown and sexy meets outer space”, atmosphere music with soul.
