Plenty of contemporary hip-hop artists take fashion cues from the 1990s, but few are as dedicated to retro-chic as Booth newcomer Kelow, who loves the decade so much that she still hasn't traded in her beeper for a mobile phone. Making its world premiere right here in The DJBooth, Hit My Pager finds producer MXXM blending grimy, clanging percussion with buzzing synth-bass as the headliner flaunts her microphone skills and her fly, '90s-baby style. Fellow DMV representative tabi Bonney guests, lending his blunted braggadocio to the joint's opening verse. Feeling it? You'll find plenty more where this came from on Kelow's Stixxx-n-Stonez EP, scheduled for digital release December 24.
