And I found this huge comp called Golden Pavillion of Dreams. I'm sort of ashamed to say this, but I found the individual tracks were pay what you want, so I just downloaded them all separately without paying anything :/. Pretty sure it's a bootleg comp anyway? Hmmm, now I just saw it's not on bandcamp anymore. Here's the tracklist anyway:

Whoa - this release is serious! Had no expectations going in but there's a wide range of styles here, lots of funk/r&b influence. Eager to dig into the credits but on first listen this is a lot of fun with some solid rapping and really interesting arrangements.
Trying to think of something to compare it to but coming up short.
Great phonte feature.... And there's a gabriel garzon-montano feature, too.

I thought I had posted about her but I wasn't sure, glad you enjoyed it.

That's a great take on her. It takes me back to a simpler time in music, there's a lot more going on now with instrumentation and vocals (which I thoroughly enjoy) but this definitely scratches an itch for music I grew up on without sounded dated.
