PREMIERE: Blossom and Myke Bogan Offer Up “Acouasm” for Pickathon’s Slab Sessions
You may wanna float right into the weekend on this one.
Not since Keith Sweat has an R&B singer been as appropriately named as Portland’s Blossom. The singer—who as a kid toured as a singer with her uncle’s steel-drum band—composes a gentle, airy form of R&B that takes its time developing.
For the latest episode of Pickathon’s Slab Sessions, Blossom is joined by Portland rapper (and Slab Session alum) Myke Bogan for a take on “Acouasm” at the edge of the woods. The pair trade pickup lines over a woozy, over-it beat that belies Bogan’s boasts and Blossom’s breathy lead. You can catch the premiere of the latest installment in the Oregon festival’s 2016–2017 season below.
