There should be a word for the combined feeling of gratitude and self-satisfaction that comes from finding an unexpected gem via SoundCloud's autoplay algorithm. There's almost certainly no other way I would've come across Lil Keish's "Fuck," a vigorous, sex-positive track from earlier this year that deserves a space in every dancehall set. A classic rhythm, buzzy synth, and artfully deployed violin sample set the base for Keish's demand, delivered with no long-talking: Come fuck me now. A little digging reveals that the artist, who alternately goes by Likkle Keish, is a Londoner with a handful excellent tunes strewn online.
