You Rate It: Kali Uchis – “Know What I Want”

kali uchis

Words by Natalie Weiner kali-uchis-900x599 If there's room for one more in 2014's league of extraordinary alt-R&B singers (see also Hollie Cook, FKA Twigs, Lianne La Havas...just to name some of our faves), it's 20 year-old Kali Uchis. A Colombiana hailing from the DMV, Uchis has a voice that falls somewhere between Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu, but with a distinctly tropical lilt, and her vintage-flavored tracks have already caught the attention of Diplo, Tyler the Creator, and Snoop Dogg (hear their duet—yes, she's already done a track with Snoop—here). After getting some hype with a great video, her latest track, "I Know What I Want," is now available on iTunes and Spotify. As Eddie STATS put it, this is "hipster lover's rock," complete with laments about guys who won't text back, and the priceless line "should have left your ass in the friend zone." The floating, easy vibe comes courtesy of NYC-via-West-Indies producer Bunx—with all that empty space, this tune is ripe for remixes. Case in point: here's the cumbia treatment, complete with Super Beagle sample. Uchis' EP Por Vida is due out early next year, and will hopefully be filled with even more addictive tropical pop tracks. What do you think of her take on lovers rock? Let us know in the comments.

Fashion Fridays: Trinidad Carnival Monday Wear

Rhion-Romany-Monday-Wear

Words by Tishanna Williams j-angelique-carnival-monday-wear-trinidad There was a time, not too long ago, when Carnival Monday in Trinidad was more casual, where it was good enough to rock a tank or tube top with your band's insignia and cute cutoffs. And it used to be that Carnival Tuesday was the day when the fashion-forward got set to really glam up and show off those tight bodies they slaved in the gym for months to perfect. Well, not anymore. Over the last few years mas bands and private designers have brought Monday Wear to the forefront of Carnival fashion. Females wearing elaborate bikini costumes on a Carnival Monday (for instance swapping their Tuesday headpiece with an jewelled headband or adding sexy embellishments) is nothing new, but the advent of a "Monday Wear" culture has invited independent designers to jump into the game. That's opened the floodgates, with competing designers vying to have their work stand out and be chosen by the revelers. Each line has little extras designers hope will put them a cut above the rest. Now it seems that ladies are just as excited about what they're wearing on Monday as they are about their actual band costumes. It looks like 2015 will be the year of Monday Wear at Carnival. Here are three designers making an impact with their Monday Wear collections.
