After Bok Bok’s work with the Fade To Mind star Kelela on her Cut4Me mixtape in 2013, the pair team up again on ‘Melba’s Call’, the lead single from Bok’s forthcoming EP.

After a series of live sets blending BB’s grime selection with Kelela’s powerful vocals, ‘Melba’s Call’ continues in that Grime&B tradition. The beat blends vintage electro-funk production with the unsteady 8bar logic and sub weight that run through all of Bok’s work. Classic samples are subverted for new purpose, an array of melodic detail and DMX drums reverberating in a concrete space. This is grime and funk as deconstructed pop production.

With its stop-start rhythm and melody fragments the beat sets a challenge for Kelela's vocal, a missed call to a love slipping away.
