Bok Bok ft. Kelela – “Melba’s Call” (Night Slugs, Release on March 31st)
There’s a couple of unreleased tunes similar to this one you may have heard in Bok Bok’s mixes lately. They’re rooted in Grime when it comes to their rythmic basis but have their lead part turning to Funk for samples. They also rely heavely on “release and tension”, with tension mostly coming from the brash chopped up Funk samples, and it’s only reassuring that it’s an idea that has surfaced in several of his interviews.
I don’t know if we can call it a new Bok Bok sound yet, but I definitely want him to further in that direction and hopefully release something out of that.
Almost a year since I first heard And Dancing.
