DAR Elite Present DAR XXX 2

Never look down on projects that start as jokes. Sometimes, they end up being better than other folks’ projects that were deathly serious. I say that because what started with a joke (True and Apollo asking the rest of Elite “are you a freak”) has spawned quite a few tracks and at least two entries in the XXX series. I say “at least two” because, knowing how True’s mind works, there’ll be like five of these between now and 2024. Auto-Tune and Melodyne Speed FTW and whatnot.

The sequel, XXX 2, kind of came out of nowhere. I mean, between sessions for Soul Revival 5, No Pain No Gain, Melodic Sphere 3 and a bunch of other Elite projects and side projects, it was just the perfect time creatively. Where the group wanted to go was simple. We wanted to get nasty as hell, kind of like a mix of the raunchy-but-smooth R&B we grew up with and some of the newer smooth-but-freaky tracks out there.

And it’s all done both with tongue firmly planted in cheek but still deadass serious. I mean, the team’s got a song on here called “Coochie Glisten” that is exactly as wild as you think it’d be.

This, depending on when you were born, may be your parent’s R&B or your older sibling’s R&B. Hell, it may just be yours. Personally, I think we hit the mark more often than not on this one (just like its predecessor). Personally, this is that “lemme sex you slow and make sweet love to you then do you crazy until we both pass out buck-naked” music at the same time.

Check out the project above with some headphones in, maybe play it for your partner and don’t hold DAR responsible if you end up with a child. Oh yeah, also remember to support dope music in all its forms.
