Hear Kali Uchis Try On Faded Neo-Funk in "Real"

photographer Joyce Kim

Kali Uchis' "Real" popped up on Kitty Cash's Love The Free II mix yesterday, a pleasant surprise built on rubbery vibraphone notes--the kind employed by afro-jazz pioneers like Cal Tjader in the '60s, and pillaged by beatsmiths like DJ Premier in the '90s. Kali's still cruising around old sounds, landing here more neo-funk than the winking doo-wop we got into on her Drunken Babble tape from last year. The lyrics are light--Yeah I'm down, but not just for anyone--subtweet couplets worthy of shelf space on the singer's oft-golden timeline. For more of Kali's way with words, peep her profile in this issue's GEN F section.
