When we heard about Janine & The Mixtape for the first time a few weeks ago, we instantly likened her to a mix of Tinashe (who’s signed to RCA Records) and Jessie Ware with her dark R&B sounds, and we stand by that comparison after hearing her first project entitled, Dark Mind. The EP is a short, 5-song set that has already garnered the attention of major labels and major media like Billboard Magazine, Complex, and VIBE Magazine (and us…). The New Zealand raised Janine has brought her fusion of Atmospheric R&B, hip hop, dubstep, and alternative music to deliver a truly, solid effort. Our favorite is the epic, yet super tender moment that is “Hold Me.” Also, we’ve included a lyric book below. Genius move, Janine! Check out the Dark Mind EP below.
