Dewen和拖鞋 is an interesting duo that might appeal to people who either can’t get into ballads or want something different to mix it up. The two work well together and each bring something different to the table. Dewen has a pretty nice voice and J-Sleeper性感的拖鞋 can rap well also. Together they have a nice dynamic and it allows them to try out many different sounds. Sometimes J-Sleeper性感的拖鞋 takes the spotlight for the more upbeat hiphop songs. Other times Dewen gets to shine for the smoother and softer R&B tracks. When they split time, they can put out some well balanced songs where both of them can do their thing.
There weren’t a lot of videos on youtube for their music, so I couldn’t feature my favorite songs or show the different sounds they have. I recommend using the time stamps to skip around the tracks of the album I posted. It is a diverse album that showcases hiphop, R&B, pop, and rock. I liked what I heard. They are definitely different from the usual cpop, which you might either like or hate. They are worth checking out either way just to see for yourself how you feel about them.
