Watch Out Wednesday: Yo Trane Takes Us On A Late Night Drive

Yo Trane has a smooth tone to his voice which, when mixed with the calming instrumentals that are nicely filled with chilled synths, along with trappy snares and high hat drum rolls, creates an immensely easy listening sound.

I recently came across a great new artist coming out of Bordeaux, France, by the name of Yo Trane. Admittedly my knowledge of the French music scene is a bit limited but I would say this is one of the best exports in the R&B genre that I’ve heard from the country in a while.

His latest EP, Late Night Drive, is strongly shaped by the popular trap-influenced R&B sound, and listening to his music it seems he takes a strong influence from similar sounding Canadian and American artists like The Weeknd, Bryson Tiller and PartyNextDoor.

Yo Trane has a smooth tone to his voice which, when mixed with the calming instrumentals that are nicely filled with chilled synths, along with trappy snares and high hat drum rolls, creates an immensely easy listening sound. The stand out tracks on the EP for me would be the title track Late Night Drive, the faster flowing, The Realest (Part 2), and the slow moving Closer. These are the tracks that really stick in your mind.

If I could add any suggestions for improvement it is that it would have been great to hear a bit more of his European background more to counter the American slant, but I won’t hold that against him as he is a refreshing addition to my Slow Jam R&B playlist.

There seems to be limited information about him online; however his track numbers are speaking for themselves and are creating a strong buzz on Sound Cloud and within the emerging artist scene. He is really one to watch out for in 2016.
