gavin turek and Diana Ross

super groovy, big voices and dance beats, obviously this didnt fully define diana’s career, we did feel this was in line with the Diana record that came out in 1980 produced by niles rodgers

Lil Silva and D’angelo

like D’Angelo, lil silva melds many sonic layers together to create his sonic portrait.  D’angelo goes a little more old school for sure, but Lil Silva is using beat matchers and laptops to create his opus.  Same end result.

 

Kevin Garrett and Sam Smith

there is an urgency and punctuation to the way both artists approach their falsetto and thus it is no wonder that we selected them to be musical doppelgangers today.  Although Mr Smith has achieved far greater accolades to date, which may be a product of his musical collaborations versus native ability, Mr Garrett has equal charm in his vocals and songwriting.

 

The Weeknd and Michael Jackson

the weeknd borrows a lot from michael jackson, in vocal approach certainly, the way he approaches his falsetto, and the emotive presence of his high register.  where as michael is clearly the king of pop, the weeknd is certainly trying to find a way to serve in the kingdom, and after the 2015 that he had, he just might do so.

 

CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON and Patrice Rushen

this downtempo soul infused track uses subtle synths and horns to get its point across, something about the charlotte day wilson track made me think about how patrice rushen use to put together her songs, although some of the instrumentation is different here, you can definitely hear that the back bones of both artists are the same.
