The thought of teflon usually brings to mind something tough and resistant, hard and strong. Yet Cleveland’s Teflon Sega renders us a melted, liquefied mess every time he serenades us with one of his R&B soul ballads. Those feelings bubble to surface yet again as Teflon Sega melts us with his creamy, satiny cooing on new single Closure, a poignant lament of a dreamy electro and velvety R&B track featuring sonic magician YLXR on foggy atmospheric, dusky surreal production duty. Tragic romance and aching heartbreak take a hold of us as we dissolve into this pillowy, dreamy affair. While the closure we seek in life might always evade us, at least we can seek comfort in Teflon Sega and drift into the night feeling a little bit more complete. Closure is a free download, here.

Smooth Casanova midnight has revealed another dark creamy jam off his forthcoming debut EP, 0:00. Marauder, produced by ylxr, is a synth swelling, percussive hypnotic R&B cut. As always, midnight cleverly delivers a powerful social statement strikingly relevant to the destructive issues our world faces right now. That message is framed in ylxr’s vibrant intoxicating future bass and trap soundscape. The resulting stunner was first premiered by Nest HQ and begs some immediate attention. midnight’s EP, 0:00, can be pre-ordered now on iTunes before its July 1st release date.

For some reason I usually don’t like Fergie songs but reluctantly come to like them. YLXR’s rework of ‘Glamorous’ immediately swooned me. Unlike my colleague and head editor Amy, I’m not as good with genre-classification, but I know this is future something, and it’s so good.

New York’s Midnight returns to rend our hearts into putty with a new song named Baptize, produced by a fresh artist named YLXR. Midnight brings plenty of that swooning future soul and R&B styled crooning that he normally sweeps us away with, but YLXR’s production is so spacey and heady, it’s out of this world. It’s a future bass extravaganza with some of the most textured and riveting elements I’ve encountered recently. Add on the minimalist, natural sound sampling tendencies of Burial, and we have an artful, breathtaking piece of music art. Shadowy and sensual, it’s a flood of dynamic, gripping sensation, a near spiritual experience, not unlike a baptism.
