Washington, DC area born and now Los Angeles-based Fade to Mind associate Kelela seduced 2013 in a most unique manner with her debut mixtape Cut 4 Me. Instead of a build to a drop, her passionate vocal stylings felt more like a whisper to a moan that echoed throughout the indie dance world and beyond. As part of the announcement of her first live dates for 2014, “The High,” Kelela’s latest single, was released. Crafted by rising producer Gifted & Blessed, when merged with the rising chanteuse’s vocals it excels in shifting one’s emotions to boil into a simmer and settle into a burn. Deep, heavy and passionate in vibe, it maintains both the momentum of the past year’s rise and the feel of her prior work, leaving writer anticipating her forthcoming performance dates.
