I had been really frustrated and bored with music before I started messing raround with the idea of producing some rap and R&B tracks on my own. rThe idea is exciting, but I'm realizing that I don't really know enough to rmake anything original. List is stuff that I dig and kind of the direction I rwant to go into; I'm mainly looking for stuff under the atrociously titled umbrella of "PBR&B" I rsuppose.
Because it would be stupid to make this list without him. This is mainly what has
inspired me in the first place: original beats, gorgeous production, an sprawling,
ambitious 9 minute track that WORKS...this record is incredible.
House Of Balloons
I haven't checked out this guy's other stuff yet, but this is incredible. It's so fucking
dark and gritty and not what you'd expect from this genre at all. I absolutely love that
about him. And it helps that his voice is incredible
Because The Internet
I'm not big on Bino in general but I really like this record, and I'm crazy about the
production. Any other rap/R&B record that has production like this is a record I want
I love Janelle Monae. The Electric Lady is a great album, but a little too influenced by
old school R&B for what I'm interested in getting into...mostly because I don't have
the capability to record many actual instruments. The Archandroid has an a amazing,
modern sound and is incredibly diverse in it's mood and instrumentation. This record
doesn't get enough credit.

|I suppose the new Justin Timberlake counts as well|
|If you haven't already, check Ocean's nostalgia, ULTRA mixtape, I like it even better than channel ORANGE personally. Great list btw.|
