There is nothing quite like the natural high that is produced upon finding a new artist whose music sends shivers up your spine and gives you goosebumps. Since I experienced this feeling upon being introduced to DJBooth newcomer Kayo, I suggest that you Don’t Bring Me Down and press play. Kayo’s style is as exotic as his hometown of St. Lucia. Atop co-producers Young K and Yogidaproducer’s airy foundation, which is splashed with a twinge of dubstep, Kayo grabs the listener’s ear with his fiery, passionate flow. The strength of this striking cut is the artist’s ability to balance both potency and poignancy; Kayo’s approach is both aggressive and captivating yet still sincere and heartfelt. Don’t Bring Me Down is the latest video single from Kayo’s S.L.A.V.E. (Serenity Lives Around Virtuous Energy) EP, available now for digital purchase via Black Box Recordings.
