Kali Uchis – After The Storm (Kartell Edit)
Kartell delivers a fresh nu-disco edit of a R&B jam in this week’s track of the week.
“A quick edit” is how he described the upload when it appeared a little over a week ago on Kartell’s Soundcloud. He makes it sound so easy. Kartell has done what he does best with his latest rework of Kali Uchis; he ups the tempo and deepens the groove, all the while letting the silky smooth vocals shine through.
Kartell has been propelling music forward in the French house scene for over five years now. As part of label Roche Musique, he stands alongside some our most loved French artists, from FKJ to Duñe, Darius and many more. For a taste of what he’s been up to lately, take a listen to his latest mixtape released just a few months ago.
The original of this track comes from Kali Uchis as her first single of 2018. It’s no surprise to see her name alongside such industry heavyweights as Tyler, The Creator and Bootsy Collins after the last few years she’s had. The Colombian-American’s brand of R&B has led to collaborations with the likes of Kaytranada, BadBadNotGood, Jorja Smith and more. If that wasn’t enough, we couldn’t go without mentioning her hit alongside Daniel Caesar ‘Get You’ which blew us away in 2016.
If you’re new to either of these two artists, then it’s time to get digging. We think you’ll like what you find.
