Canadian R&B musician Tommy Paxton-Beesley has made an indelible impression on the world as River Tiber, even catching the attention of fellow Toronto artist Drake in the process, which lead to their collaboration on Drake’s widely celebrated 2015 album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. River Tiber is also known for working with BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada, as well as Jazz Cartier. It’s been awhile since IHM checked in on the artist. Just in time for the coldest, shortest days of the year comes his warm caressing, velvety smoldering new ballad, Patience. A soupy, murky mixture of broiling R&B and plush electronica oozes late night longing and heartbroken melancholia, but in a steamy seductive, sensually evocative fashion. Ever astonishing are River Tiber’s exceptional vocals. We reel under the weight of so much heated passion. Patience can also be streamed via Soundcloud below.

Toronto based producer River Tiber has impressed both my ears and Drakes’, an impressive feat, considering the fact that Drake even sampled No Talk for his recent much talked about mixtape. The electronic act continues to melt my face with ghostly, trippy single Motives. It’s a murky experimental electronic meets swooning R&B jam with a very dark and stormy edge.

Drake fans might recognize this act from his latest mixtape (yes, the one that proclaims it’s too late if you’re reading whatever it is you’re reading). He sampled Toronto act River Tiber’s No Talk on his song No Tellin’. The hypnotizing song is a must listen in all its full, heady experimental electronic glory. It’s like a far tripper blend of Chet Faker and Movement with lush yet hauntingly dark electronic production that James Blake would approve of. There’s a very primal quality to the song’s lustful ambiance.
