Arguably the most exciting genre resurgence of the 2010s has been the way that R&B has begun to rule the roost in a way that it hasn't since the 1960s/1970s. Artists like Frank Ocean, James Blake, Beyonce, D'Angelo, and others are breathing new life in a genre that sadly spent most of the aughts stagnating. We're premiering the video for the track "Buzz" from R&B artist Josh Dst
, and it makes it clear that Josh Dst is putting his own imprint on R&B's revitalization.
Josh Dst's voice calls to mind an edgier Frank Ocean, but what really sets Mr. Dst apart is his psychedelic production. With hazy, swirling beats, Dst captures the disorienting and perspective-altering power of romance in the video as the images of the video itself capture a couple in pre-coital (and eventually mid & post) warmth with some deliciously over-the-top Freudian sexual imagery to finish the connecting the dots.
