Hear Two Delicious New Offerings From James Fauntleroy
In this day and age, it's a criminally rare thing for someone to be as ubiquitous and well-utilized as James Fauntleroy. The powerhouse purveyor of r&b-tinged pop compositions has made his mark on some the year's most cherished cuts, including a recent feature on Kendrick Lamar's adored To Pimp A Butterfly LP in early spring, as well as Frank Ocean's Channel Orange and Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience before that. But the most intimate venue to hear him (outside of frequent pop-up performances in the greater Los Angeles area) has always been his Soundcloud page, where he's been quietly showering the world with slick acoustic cuts and rough demos for years on end. The past 24 hours have found the prolific producer and vocal arranger letting loose a double dose of tenderness, first late last night with the minute-long musical morsel "Mid-Air" and then just hours ago with the fully filled-out and simply sultry "SEX HIGH," which woos and seduces with its subtle synth-y funk. Both should be considered essential additions to your weekend's score and can be heard down below. Keep your ears perked and your eyes on us for updates on the Fauntleroy's frequencies in the weeks and months ahead.
