Why do we like this?

"A Message" has Kelela's beautiful and powerful voice making a home out of Arca's blunted digital production. A slice of Kelela's Hallucinogen EP, the singer continues to dive deep into emotive, immersive and modern R&B music. Think Aaliyah on Ketamine.  

Speaking to Pitchfork about the creation of the track, Kelela shared this memory of meeting and working with Arca:

"I met Alejandro [Arca] on a boat in August of 2012. We sought one another out across a dance floor and within 5 minutes agreed to meet each other as soon as possible to collaborate. I had one song released to my name and had just heard one of his mixes, but we knew we'd found something in one another. We spent the next three days, 14 hours a day talking about our artistic visions and how it intersected with our personal lives, making songs that reflected that while dancing around the room to let it all out. About 5 or 6 demos were born out of these three days."
