Kelela - The High

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Kelela
  • Track: The High
  • Producer: Gifted & Blessed
  • Album: None (Promo Single)

A unsigned alt-R&B songstress hailing from Washington, D.C., Kelela makes her grand entrance into The DJBooth with a brand new promo single. Though this cut is titled The High, it quickly becomes clear that the addictive “substance” influencing the artist's mindstate isn't chemical in nature. Over Gifted & Blessed's boardwork, a subtly driving arrangement fueled by chugging percussion and almost sub-audible synth bass, she offers a play-by-play of a mutual seduction. Featuring lines like “My lips are creeping up your neck / You shiver and try to pull back, and forth...” delivered in a breathy coo, this record isn't just a song; it's auditory foreplay. Interest piqued? Then stay tuned; The High isn't part of a larger set, but we'll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes from this talented up-and-comer.
