║ Lucid ║
‘Lucid’, the fourth single from UK producer extraordinaire, Calper, comes off of his project, Feels EP. Enlisting Swedish-Iranian songwriter and vocalist Ayelle, “Lucid” builds slowly into a late night lounge sizzler that’s hard not to groove along too.
Calper & Ayelle have separately been making names for themselves for quite some time now. They’ve come together once again, delivering a stripped down and soulful vibe that works well together.
Nocturnal beats and a spacious, dreamy groove set the tone of this chilled-out electro piece. Ayelle’s breathy vocals coupled with ethereal harmonies weave through a distant haze of minimalist instrumentation. A gentle guitar with echo fx, hypnotic hang drums, and random percussive stabs enhance the atmospheric theme.
The mellow music-maker and her producer, delve further into Ayelle’s lyrical clarity and sultry vocals. Together they’re part of a new generation of vocalists who have established themselves in the alternative RnB world.
The duo covered Kanye West’s “Real Friends,” DJ Snake’s “Middle” as well as Skrillex and Diplo’s “Mind,” accumulating thousands of plays; along with a co-sign from the artist, Bipolar Sunshine.
We simply cannot get enough of the chill, rhythmic vibes of this masterpiece, driven by Ayelle’s sultry vocals!
