The Weeknd
Dazed rhythm, deep blues
The Weeknd have created a niche for R&B. The two canadians have copied modern musical phenomenons of artists like james Blake and turned them into a genre that used to be degenerated as super-nightclub-sound. With a slowness, soaked with tranquilizers, the canadian duo has found a new form of expression in the R&B-genre, has created a niche beyond predictability of commercialised stars on David-Guetta-Instrumentals.

Kiss Land
»Kiss Land« is drawing its strength from the fine sketches of The Weeknd’s character and the atmosphere around. It still lacks musical class in order to trump »House Of Balloons«.
