Produced by Gifted & Blessed, the latest tune by L.A.-based singer/songwriter Kelela is the stuff trip-hop fans dream of.  It’s like early Tricky featuring Martina Topley Bird with slick, bass-heavy beats and other downtempo and trippy elements, all of which mesh perfectly with Kelela’s half-steamy, half-icy vocals.  Here’s hoping she does more fine trip-hop tracks with Gifted & Blessed.  We’d love a whole album of this stuff.

Kelela U.S. tour dates:

3/12-3/14 – Austin, TX – SXSW Shows
4/2 – Los Angeles – The Echo
4/3 – Brooklyn, NY – Rough Trade NYC
