London-based producer and selector, DJ Chillz returns with ‘Keep Me Safe’, the second single to be released from her expertly crafted, ‘Adebowale EP’.
Leaning into a more Afro Electronic Chilled sound, ‘Keep Me Safe’ showcases Chillz’ more mellow side; drawing influences from her distinctly unique blend of house, RnB and Afrobeat; as well as her Nigerian heritage. Minimal yet addictive, ‘Keep Me Safe’ fuses sharp percussive beats and simple guitar chords with distorted vocal chops in her native tongue of Yoruba; a track to smoothly ease us into the winter months.
“I produced and wrote this track after a Kemetic Yoga session, almost as a form of self therapy. It brought me closer to my Nigerian heritage with the use of my mother tongue of Yoruba in the lyrics.” – DJ Chillz
