BOK BOK featuring KELELA Melba’s Call
The jam I’ve been obsessing over the past few weeks, ‘Melba’ now gets a proper visual accompaniment. The label behind my latest infatuation, Night Slugs along with signee Kingdom’s Fade to Mind imprint have been leading the way for a new sound to break through, one that combines girmey cold breaks, and R&B, while adding punchy, (often synth), elements to give their tracks this epic dance feel that just screams “give me a music video.”
Well Night Slugs labelhead Bok Bok heard those cries and is back with a video for his collaborative new single with a 2013 fave, Kelela. I profiled the singer in my CMJ Preview last year and said, Her melodic progressions draw you in and string you along as her musical prose unfolds. She encompasses a sultry mix of Aaliyah drawls and Janet Jackson’s strong feminine aesthetic that makes her one of the most exciting new acts in the game.
Now that you’re property lubed up, go ahead and press play and enjoy the ride.
