Today we have a perfect lazy Sunday, feel good jam for your listening pleasure by Soulection’s Stwo. Ta-Ku recently enlisted the dreamy vocal talents of Alina Baraz on “Down For You," and now we see that she has the perfect voice to remix as Stwo takes on her collaborative track alongside Galimatias titled “Maybe” off their Urban Flora EP. This talented Soulection producer brings a sultry, atmospheric vibe that is a perfect rainy day tune as background rain and vinyl crackles set the mood for slow, melodic synths underneath some minimalist percussion and he even throws in a gong sample to round it out. Enjoy
