Who isn't a sucker for modern flips of R&B favourites? It is a trend in electronic music these days - refreshing smooth classics with an updated vibe. With killer artists including Kaytranada, Stwo, Esta bringing forward this new hip hop soul sound, it seems the trend will not die out soon, as it possesses a timeless sound. Producer Justice Skolnik hails from San Francisco and has a peppy sound that takes influence from house music, future bass and indie pop bliss. He's seen success with his remix of Matoma's "False Alarm" in the Spotify realm with 600k plays and #5 on the HypeMachine charts. The artist has remixed a wide range of artists including The Weeknd, Years and Years, Oh Wonder and more.

In Justice Skolnik's latest, he samples the Brandy classic "I Wanna Be Down". The track's got some warm tropical vibes but is tactfully layered with rolling future bass synths. Catchy progressions and glistening sound design adds a strong dimensionality to the breathy original. The glistening build up and dwindling arpeggios create for a distinct sound to creep and linger in the mind. Justice Skolnik's "You Could Be Down" is definitely one to stick around indelibly on your chilled out playlists.
