Collie Buddz - Phone Call
In this fast-moving, impersonal era of emails and sexting (side note: is “sexting” not the most awkward technology-related coinage since “vlog?”), it’s rare that two people are able to set aside the time for a good, old-fashioned dirty Phone Call. Blind to You singer Collie Buddz, however, is all about getting hot and heavy via his mobile handset, as demonstrated by this newly-released single. As the Bermuda-born singer delivers a secondhand account of an erotic chat with his girl, Booth-acclaimed production duo K-Salaam and Beatnick man the boards, serving up a Caribbean-informed slow-jam instrumental with a characteristically lush, spacey sound – complete, of course, with plenty of sampled female moans. Is this steamy, reggae-influenced ode to phone sex a winner? That, Booth readers, is your call (lame pun intended). Collie Buddz’ forthcoming full-length, Finally…, is set to drop sometime this summer via Harper Digital/Mojizo Records. In the meantime, fans can keep it locked to our front page for the latest news and tunes.
