With the emergence of a new edgy, sexy, gritty era of R&B, artists like The Weekend and Syd the Kyd (The Internet) have fused Trap, Trance and live instrumentation with sultry, hot blooded vocals and love/hate raps. This new hot burning form of genre bending is fueled by drugs, hormones and the dramatics of the human spirit…then possibly more drugs.

Portland Producer, Neill Von Tally and Portland via LA vocalist, The Last Artful, Dodgr are an even deeper chamber of this exciting new sub genre and are proud to announce their new collaborative EP Fractures, (Listen above) at just under 9 minutes, the term collaboration is definitely not used lightly for this 3-track release distributed by former NBA star Martell Webster’s new label, EYRST.

While Dodgr approaches every instrumental with an ever evolving flow, stylistic delivery, and standout tone, she also importantly knows when and where to let Neill’s soundscapes breathe, giving added life to every song. At times very dark and moody, Fractures takes the listeners on a roller coaster ride of emotion and energy. From the bouncy Slick Devious featured track, “InDemand” to the reflective, spiritual closing theme “Foreclosure.”
