Obey City Noticed A Drought Of Slow Jams And Fixed It

Listen to “Waterbed” from the NYC producer’s forthcoming EP on LuckyMe.

February 04, 2015

Over the last few years, Glasgow-based label LuckyMe has become famous for pushing extremely high-energy music by the likes of TNGHT, Rustie, and Baauer. That sound has really taken off, and since become sort of ubiquitous, so it's nice to hear a change of pace with this luxurious slow jam from NYC producer Obey City. It's called "Waterbed" and features vocals by Yonkers, NY-based vocalist Anthony Flammia. "Many of my all-time favorite R&B songs have been slow jams," Obey City explained to The FADER via email. "I think there's been a real void in recent years, especially on the radio where uptempo music tends to get the most play. The 'Waterbed' instrumental began as my tribute to everything I love about them, and Anthony really understood the vibe and took it to another level with his performance." Check the track out below, and be on the lookout for its release on the Merlot Sounds EP, due February 23 on LuckyMe.
