mdnt – 1v1
More smooth and sultry seduction from Brooklynite mdnt on his latest track ‘1v1’. This is as sexual as you can get in three minutes with your pants still on, so lay your lady down and light a fire real quick, things are about to get steamy.
“Future Soul” artist mdnt is no stranger exploring the darker elements of soul and R&B, his down-tempo milky flow conjuring images of the late 90’s megastars that paved the way for radio-ready rhythm and soul. And yet, Usher wishes he could produce something this silky and relevant (props to Toronto’s own The Theorist for his poignant sense of direction). ‘1v1’ is a breath of crisp fresh air, a new definition for soulful R&B and the inevitable future of sound. Mixing elements of lo-fi EDM with classical jazz and piano, ‘1v1’ is the type of genre-bending eargasm that would make Barry White himself to turn away and blush. It speaks to the depths of our animalistic desires, a confession of warm-blooded intimacy, while the layered vocal harmonies transfigure and shift shapes. mdnt becomes whoever you want him to be, a musical manifestation of pleasure, and a voice for the future.
