Dream team Riton & Kah-Lo are back again on spicy house banger ‘Ginger’
Club producer RITON and songwriter/vocalist KAH-LO are a potent combo. Separately, they excel at what they do but together they bring out a new energy in each other that is totally infectious. Every single collab from the duo has been a viral bop, matching one’s forward thinking house beats with the other’s buzzword laden hooks. Working together has brought them international acclaim, over 100 million combined Spotify streams and a Grammy nomination. Their latest collaboration, ‘Ginger’, follows in similar form, exploring a poppier direction while still keeping the house beats pumping and the energy high.
Riton‘s driving house beat commands the production, keeping the time for Kah-Lo‘s syncopated delivery and a next level bass line. Every squeaky fill and percussive sample makes for a peppy track that doesn’t really need too many more flourishes when its simplicity is already so addictive. As the track goes on, elements are warped and tweaked, making for some choppy breakdowns and a stretched out build up to the final drop before a thumping climax.
In all of the duo’s collabs, Kah-Lo delivers her quippy lyrics with a spoken work flow and peppy attitude. ‘Ginger’ follows suit with her inflections jumping all over the place in her Nigerian twang, hitting everywhere the beat isn’t already. The chorus leading up to the drop however is a new step for the artist, singing into the breakdown and sprinkling in another taste of melody alongside the repeated bass line.
The vibrancy in the production and vocals in Riton & Kah-Lo‘s collaborations always make for club earworms, and ‘Ginger’ is yet another for the duo. Together, the two elevate each other’s contributions to make a perfect combination; joyous party music that is pure fun and will get your body moving. The dream team are heading to Australia in the coming months for Splendour in the Grass and to grace stages in Sydney and Melbourne for sideshows featuring fellow club duo ANTONY & CLEOPATRA.
