The Top 20 Tracks Of 2011 Number: 8

Number 8: The Weeknd-House Of Balloons/Glass Table Girls

One of the great discoveries of 2011 was the magnificent ‘House Of Balloons’ mixtape by The Weeknd. In the same vein as Frank Ocean’s laid back R’N’B vocals, what separates Abel Tesfaye is the amount of different musical styles he incorporates in his music. From R’N’B vocals, Dubstep beats, Electronic chords and sweeping soul, this track epitomises the mood of the record. With a epic chorus and a killer beat and seriously trippy, sex filled lyrics. It suddenly drops into dirty, grungey dub beats. Awesome track and record.

  1. […] Frank Ocean.  AND SBTRKT! This is absolutely unreal, everything about it. SBTRKT adds a chilled out beat to an already chilled out vocal. These guys were fucking made for each other.
