Kali Uchis – Ridin Round (Prod. by DJ Dahi)

Kali Uchis has done a lot recently to ascend to the forefront of a rising crop of indie-pop stars (that’ll soon probably be pop stars). From working with the likes of Tyler, The Creator to touring with Leon Bridges, the Colombian vocalist has garnered impressive steam in a competitive industry. Today, Uchis released the DJ Dahi produced Ridin Round – and she does nothing but prove why she is worthy of the the praises she has received from high and low. Uchis showcases a unique sound going in and out of a flowy-cadence to singing about how she is just as good as billed – which in all actuality blends together nicely as I don’t think there’s too many “pop” artists using this sort of approach.

Kali Uchis – Por Vida

The first of several projects coming out in 2015 I have been anticipating for quite some time dropped Tuesday and I couldn’t be more pleased. Columbian starlet Kali Uchis’ Por Vida is a tasteful amount of retro, as well as a healthy dose of modern. With production from Kaytranada, BADBADNOTGOOD, and Tyler, The Creator, Uchis’ blend of spliced beach rock and jazzy drum fills swirl together to create a one-of-a-kind musical soft-serve. In “Rush”, produced by Kaytranada and BADBADNOTGOOD, Uchis singing style is showcased to the fullest while the BADBADNOTGOOD dudes lay out some killer jazz jams and Kaytranada comes in at the end to put his touch on it all. To say I’m satisfied with this release is an understatement. Kali Uchis is a true artist in 2015 with impeccable talent for creating a vibe and a sound that not a lot of other artists seem to be able to get down like she can. Bravo, Kali. Bravo.
