Robin Thicke has one of those voices where when he is featured in a song it can hard to differentiate whether his vocals are contemporary or samples from the past. Regardless of if he has been sent into the modern times with mission or if he is just trying to revive a lost sound, reworking his sultry vibes with instrumentals from the modern electronic scene is a natural fit.
The newest venturing of his sound into current styles comes from LA’s Bixel Boys, who rework his track “For The Rest of Life“ into a borderline dance song. Supplementing a distorted synth stab to maintain a steady pace and an angelic sting-based background result in warm feelings, the Bixel Boys allow Thicke’s vocals to play the highlighted role. So cheers to the electronic production duo for not distracting from Thicke, allowing the soulful sound that keeps listeners coming back to flourish.
