RKCB continues in putting out consistently good music with their 4th/last single from their “Short Films” EP, “Lights Low.” Below you can find the impressive debut EP, and “Lights Low.”
“With each song we’ve released, we’ve tried to capture small, intimate moments. They each have their own lens through which we look at this relationship, but still rely on each other to capture the full picture.” – RKCB

The fact that we can classify Candyland and their newest production, “Speechless,” featuring RKCB, as a pop track proves how far the music industry has come in integrating dance music into the mainstream. A year ago, anything Candyland, and Candyland-produced, would be firmly considered electronic dance music, no two ways about it, but within the last year, dance music’s popularity has steadily grown to the point where the line between pop and dance has been blurred – and Candyland and RKCB are taking advantage of it.
You may remember Candyland as an emerging, electro house duo, but earlier this year, they went their separate directions, and “Speechless” is the latest release from Candyland that showcases a new, matured sound by the Santa Barbara-based producer.
Gone from her arsenal are the blaring horns and thumping kicks of main stage dance music, and in its place are tropical-influenced synths and a smooth house backbone that gives “Speechless” some serious groove. Throw in just a touch of indie vibes, courtesy of RKCB, and Candyland’s new tune will have you “speechless.” Take a gander at it below.
RKCB is what happens when great sounds come together and unify as one sound. That ‘said’ sound is something that is awesome to listen to, something that you’re scared to keep on replay, but it’s inevitable after a few listens. Just let the magic happen, and the magic will come to you. Hit the jump for the SoundCloud player, and lyrics!
The #SunsetFam killed it this month (we kill it every month). When collaborating for these monthly playlists, we like to do what’s best for business, and you are what’s best for business. Different genres, different artists, different sounds. There’s something on here for everyone, or maybe you’re like us and everything on here is for you. Say goodbye to July, and welcome August with open arms.
Highlights this month:
RKCB makes their debut with “Ignite.” NoMBe shines with “Miss Mirage” as he takes you on a journey. Gnash drops his guard and lets you in with “I Hate U I Love U.” MIYNT channels dark-pop-magic with “Civil War.” Allday, who you may remember from working with Skizzy Mars, dropped a solid 7-track mixtape. Arjun told us we should worry about a guy named Allan Rayman. Last, but not least, Meek Mill called out Drake for being fake. Drake responded with not one,
not two, not three, just kidding, two “diss” songs because I guess rappers still do that. You can find the second one on this playlist. Oh, and our fellow writer, Andy, became Twitter famous with his tweet about Meek Mill’s response track.

Enter the dreamy realm of RKCB. A world created by Riley Knapp and Casey Barth that will give you your electronic-RnB fix that you’re always craving because it’s so great. What can make a great song is the story it tells, and not just with the vocals. Paired with a stunning backdrop, “Ignite” tells a story of falling in love with your best friend and the sparks/burns that come with your feelings.
Their debut EP is slated for a release later this Summer. With “Ignite” being the lead single, be ready to enter this realm.
