Bok Bok x Kelela

Introducing herself with a sublime mixtape last year, Kelela established herself as an enticing newcomer.

Working with Kingdom's Fade To Mind label, the American artist was able to cherry pick beats from some of the finest producers around.

Given that Fade To Mind is closely linked to Night Slugs, a collaboration with a British producer was perhaps somewhat inevitable.

However the stunning success of 'Melba's Call' still comes as a surprise. Bok Bok's layered, grime-indebted production is the perfect masculine foil for Kelela's wonderfully feminine vocal.

Touching, moving and built for club use this is perhaps Kelela's finest moment to date.
