AKA Abel Tesfaye has been getting an insane amount of love since, well, this morning when Pitchfork gave his new mixtape BNM. It still manages to amaze me just how much the Best New Music tag can sway an artist’s popularity. Anyway, this new The Weeknd Mixtape, House of Balloons, is great. He makes some pretty dark R’n’B with beats largely influenced by Dubstep/Witch House (I apologise for using both of those terms). The production quality is pretty amazing for a free mixtape as well. Here’s the track and if you like it then there’s a link to the mixtape down below.
