Jason Biyo “Numb” - the king of the modern R&B resurgence has arrived
May 22, 2020
Review by Adam Jones
Today I had the opportunity to review an amazing new single titled "Numb" from rising R&B artist Jason Biyo. This dude has pipes! After listening to this track, I have no doubt that Jason Biyo will be the one to usher in the best era of R&B music.
The song opens up with an ethereal synthesizer - an instrumental choice which helps to prepare the senses for Jason Biyo’s heavenly vocals. Following the first verse, the 808 drops, creating a deep sonic atmosphere that reels you in even further. It creates a sense of urgency that doesn’t go away.
In my opinion, the thing that separates Jason Biyo’s sound from others is his vocal layering technique. He’s got killer harmonies - his thick vocal sounds transport you to another world. If I had to describe the harmonies, they sound both futuristic AND nostalgic. It’s a very difficult sound to achieve, and yet somehow Jason Biyo achieved it.
Jason Biyo’s “Numb” is a masterpiece.
