STwo – “Aura”
Pairs Well With…Flume, Sango, Sweater Beats
Hip hop, R&B and down-tempo electronica – all elements of emerging producer STwo’s impressive concoctions. STwo is a beatmaker and remixer by trade, but his tracks are so well rounded that they work as complete pieces without accompaniment. His music is easy on the ears, minimizing body-shaking intentions for massaged melodies and understated rhythmic anchors. Latest track “Aura”, released just this week, is perhaps STwo’s most spacious yet. While this follows in STwo’s mostly instrumental foundation, be sure to give a listen to “Lovin U” for a fully formed, down-tempo R&B-pop song. At just twenty years old, STwo is overflowing with potential – keep an ear out for this early streak of strength to continue into the next few years.

Flaming June. Frederic Leighton 1895.
“Flaming June is a painting by Sir Frederic Leighton, produced in 1895. Painted with oil paints on a 47” × 47” square canvas, it is widely considered to be Leighton’s magnum opus, showing his classicist nature. It is thought that the woman portrayed alludes to the figures of sleepingnymphs and naiads the Greeks often sculpted. The (toxic) Oleander branch in the top right, symbolises the fragile link between sleep and death.The actresses Dorothy Dene and Mary Lloyd, who were depicted in paintings by various Pre-Raphaelite artists, have been variously credited with modelling for the work.
