Two of the most respected songwriters in our scene, Kafele and Eliki come together again to deliver nothing short of a sexy masterpiece. Eliki, (pronounced Ee-like-ee) is an artist known for her sweet soulful tone.
A voice that reminds you of a past generation with a wordplay and style that reflects the here now. Kafele, trumpeter, composer and producer, has been playing the trumpet for over 20 years. The name Kafele (pronounced kuh-FAY-lay) is of African origin, and means worth dying for. Born in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We are so excited to be able to bring this inspiring team to you on this release.

On remix duties we have some of our favorite young stars doing what they do best. DJ Cecil's Beatdown is exactly that, a soul-filled broken beatdown straight from the Bay Area. While rising star and fellow Ocha artist Ezel brings his signature Quisqueya Soul sound and takes the tune for a ride. South African superstar Eltonnick representing red hot Baainar Records delivers a remix that has already proven to be a chart-topping smash in SA and last but certainly not least, Israel's Yotam Avni lets the vocals breathe and tells us "More is Less".
