Mateo - Oohh N Love (Evolution of a Track: Step 2 - Drums)

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Mateo
Producer:
Adam Blackstone & JL Brown
Album:
Underneath The Sky Ch. 2 Mixtape / Untitled Debut

Being that the label is run by the world’s primary social networking site, you’d expect the artists on MySpace Records to be on the cutting edge of both musical and technological trends. That assumption certainly holds true for Mateo, an R&B singer with an ethereal sound that’s both retro and forward-looking. In addition to setting the record for longest song title in Booth history,  Oohh N Love (Evolution of a Track: Step 2 – Drums) may be received as one of the best indie R&B tracks to hit our frontpage to date.  The combination of Mateo’s soft tenor voice and Adam Blackstone & JL Brown‘s heavenly-sounding beat will doubtless elicit comparisons to a few of the genre’s legends (Maxwell and Boyz II Men come to mind here).  Mateo and the MySpace brass are clearly well aware of this cut’s potential—Oohh N Love is the only original track on the singer’s Underneath The Sky Ch. 2 mixtape (available now for free download), and will also be included on his yet-untitled debut album (set to drop in the fourth quarter of ‘09).
