RnBass (or R&Bass) is a movement and contemporary music genre that is the modernized form of traditional R&B music. Described by Vibe (magazine) as a breath of fresh air for the R&B genre, RnBass consists of tonal singing, melodic harmonies, along with heavy 808’s that replace the ‘blues’ aspect of rhythm and blues.[1] There are also notable elements of EDM, with influences of 1990s-2000s music.[2][3] Coined by Bay Area producer J Maine, the RnBass musical style has garnered critical attention since the early-to-mid 2010s and has been popularized with urban audiences across America by Los Angeles producer DJ Mustard.[4] Despite originating in the West Coast, namely the Bay Area and Los Angeles, RnBass producers and artists across the globe continue to develop R&B with the modern RnBass genre. Youtube producers like Starra & Skylark Beats have been heavily pushing the genre online with their various remixes, tutorials and RnBass instrumentals. ~courtesy of wikipedia~

RnBass is a sub-genre I am enjoying getting to know more and more. Though I feel a of the artists in this genre lack imagination creatively there are definitely some highlights for me in artists like Khalid and Bryson Tiller. I think I really can bring something new to this sound so please keep your ears to the instrumentals in this genre.
