Janine And The Mixtape – Dark Mind [FreEP] I Stream/Download

janine and the mixtape
New Zealand probably isn’t the first place you would think of when it comes to electronic soul and R&B productions, but Janine And The Mixtape places the NZ firmly on the map with her ethereal, synth-laden songs on new free EP, Dark Mind.

Running at a short five tracks, Janine grabs your attention within the intro to opening track “Let It Run”, layering her echoing vocals over a smooth, clicking drum beat. Throughout the EP Janine cements her signature sound, utilising a heavier, hip-hop beat on title track “Dark Mind” and then going on to strip back all unnecessary sounds for the low-frequency sensual lullaby that is “Hold Me”. Finishing with “Little Bit” and “Bullets”, Janine And The Mixtape showcases her abilities to compete with the finest female R&B auteurs out there, effortlessly singing over some nocturnal Weeknd-style production. Janine says herself of her the EP “ It’s about taking something horrible and turning it into something beautiful as way of healing and hopefully inspiring others.”
