Call Me

You will want Doller on speed dial after feeling the heat of the fusionist fire in his EP, Call Me

On November 3rd, UK’s fieriest genre fusionist Doller dropped his dynamic three-track EP, Call Me, to prove he’s lost none of the flair, flow, or finesse that has seen his audience stretch across the globe during his storming 15-year music career.

After track one unravels as an infectiously hooked garage hip-hop anthem, which efficaciously gets you in the groove and hot under the collar, Doller dips into a pseudo-trap iteration of dancehall before bringing in a smooth and steamy session of trap-soul. Achieving that feat of sonic eclecticism with three separate tracks would be one thing, but Doller exhibited his superlative versatility by reworking the same track while ensuring that each track stands by the volition of its own merit.

From the luxe high vibes that reverberate around the rhythmically arresting first single, which features MC Neat and Zara W, to the scintillating atmosphere in track two to the wavy, dreamy tonal hues within track three, which pays an intimate ode to intimacy with a little help from Aleisha Lee and Terry Trill, there’s something for everyone in the Call Me EP, which has established Doller as the baller of originality.

Before the release of Call Me, the Edmonton-originating artist who was born the roots reggae icon Kush Tafari and shares blood with the Jamaican rapper Flash earned endorsements from the likes of Ghetts, Tion Wayne, DJ Target, Charlie Sloth, Sian Anderson, Sir Spyro, Wiley, and Logan Sama. His music has also been synced into an MTV Base advert and the critically acclaimed film Sket. Over the years, he’s flitted between rap, dancehall, and trap-soul as his musical influences diversified. If one thing has remained a constant, it is the renown that has stemmed from his versatile style and impressive lyrical prowess. While some artists out there gas themselves up as a triple threat, Doller is asserting himself as the ultimate threat and one to watch throughout 2024.

Only a Word: Barnwell-based RnB artist Colosse steam in with Call Me

Sliding into the moment and singing with a romantic aura to turn up rather loud, Colosse keeps things simple in the hottest way imaginable with a lovers anthem to kiss with all night, Call Me.

Colosse (pronounced cuh-las-aye) aka Brooks Danner is a Barnwell, South Carolina-based indie RnB artist who functions with the kind of imagination which could leave many breathless.

Picking up the phone and showing us all the one, two, three motions to get things started, Colosse is in imperious form and shall bring many blushes to the night no matter the weather. Sung so purely and with little fake flash, this is a delightfully calming ear warmer to bring two hearts together.

Call Me from Barnwell, South Carolina-based indie RnB solo musician Colosse is a dynamic sizzler which might leave subtle burn marks. This is a stunning single which is top quality from all corners, as it lets in the beauty which the world needs more of when the days get dark and lonely.

If you want a song to ignite a rare passion, this is it.

Turn this up rather loud on Spotify.
