FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist: JR Nelson


We love the “come hither” stare Future R&B producer JR Nelson is giving us in his press photo and we’re impressed even more with the music the DC based artist has been putting out over the last year just at the tender age of 20. With chart topping remixes of Andra Day and Bon Iver, we have a feeling that 2016 is going to be even bigger, hopefully with some more original tracks. We asked Nelson to put together some of his favorite tunes and the result mirrors his R&B influenced music. Take a listen below!

dvsn – With Me
“I first stumbled upon the dvsn project when reading an article about how “Hotline
Bling” producer Nineteen85 was starting a side project with an anonymous vocalist. With three stellar tracks out to date, dvsn is the sleeper pop rnb hit of 2016. Its clean, soulful, and creative.”

Ibrahim Maalouf – Red & Black Light (20syl Remix)
“I was immediately entranced by the rich textures in the percussion and synth design, accented by samplings of Ibrahim Maalouf on trumpet. Falling in love with this track was a no brainer.”

Autograf – Metaphysical (Daktyl Remix)
“I first starting liking Daktyl when he remixed Japanese Wallpaper’s “Breathe In (ft.
Wafia)” last year and I feel like he did an even better job on this remix. Autograf is awesome to begin with, Daktyl touching the track is just flames.”

Andra Day – Rise Up (JR Nelson Remix)

esta. – AllNight
“If you’re not hip to Justin Bieber or esta. yet, just listen to this.”

Leon T. Pearl – You’ll Be Fine
“There’s just something about these vocals. I can’t stop listening to it. I originally found it through a nu-disco remix, but the original shines bright.”

kayjo. – trophy (ft. rahrah the savage)
“RahRah the Savage is a savage when it comes to vocals. He murders any beat he touches. Kayjo is a beast and murders any vocals he touches. It makes a good combo.”

Kiiara – Intention
“Kiiara is another amazing vocalist. She’s the white Beyoncé. Nuff said.”

unkown & SevnthWonder – Can I (ft. Devrano)
“In the flurry of music he’s been releasing lately, SevnthWonder put out this collab with unknown and Devrano, and its to die for. With a mix of adept synth and percussion work compunded by killer vocals, this track bangs.”

S’natra – Feelin’ Good (ft. Synead) (Prod. Ivan Jackson)
“Coming from half the creative mind of Brasstracks, Ivan Jackson, my good friend S’natra kills this upeat bright song. Save this one to cure any rainy day blues.”

JR Nelson Socials:


FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist: SoySauce


Washington, DC golden production duo SoySauce earlier this year released their debut and aptly titled EP “Lunch Money,” whose proceeds went towards feeding hungry children via Los Angeles Food Bank’s Backpack Program and marked the duo as a social cause based project. Besides feeding the needy, the duo made up of Royal and Soyboy over the past year has quickly garnered a strong fanbase and nods from the industry for their bass groove heavy production with that ever slight tinge of pop influence. We asked SoySauce to put together some of their current favorite tunes, all of which you can stream below. The selection features the elusive pop meets R&B newcomer Kiiara, Louis The Child’s runaway hit “It’s Strange” and many more.

TroyBoi – ili

“This song is absolutely wild to us. It has that great soulful vibe but still hits so hard. LOVE this jam.”

Louis the Child – It’s Strange (Ft. K.Flay)

“Our boys in Louis the Child are extremely talented and rad. We really enjoy the vibes of this one and how it moves. K.Flays voice was made for this instrumental too.”

Tory Lanez x Benzel – Initiation

“We’ve been big fans of both Tory and Benzel separately. Seeing them come together and make this song is amazing. It’s so catchy.”

Stephen – Remembering Myself

“Stephen is nothing short of a breath fresh air. The way he blends organic instruments with electronic music is just too spot on. This song has been on repeat for us since it came out.”

Kiiara – Feels

“Kiiara is super new and super dope. All of her releases so far have been great. The song ‘Feels’ in particular is suuuppppeeerrrr addicting.”

Robokid, AObeats & Manila Killa – Helix 2.0 (Ft. Blaise Railey)

“This song is fun AF AF. So many amazing people on this song!! It has this awesome blend of 80s pop mixed with modern urban and electronic music. It’s done so right!”
