Meeka Kates Feat. Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez – No
Boogie Angst faithful Meeka Kates comes and goes unpredictably, but when he strikes up a tune it is seldom a dud. Never was this more than his return to Kraak & Smaak’s imprint this month courtesy of “No.” Accompanied by Brooklyn vocal talent Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez, the tracks ambient R&B fundamentals benefit from an organic fusion of the two crooner’s distinct vocal talents, bringing something refreshingly soulful and evocative to the table without ever being too imposing. It’s a fine moment of finesse from two incredibly accomplished New York talents.
