Auszeichnungen Pitchfork: Best New Music
Seit 2012 hat Karly-Marina Loaiza alias Kali Uchis eine derartige Sammlung an Features begonnen, dass man dabei an den von Medaillen strotzenden Brustkorb eines sowjetischen Generals denken muss... Auf das Debütalbum der Amerikanerin kolumbianischer Abstammung, die mit ihrer Stimme Titel von Snoop Dogg, Tyler, The Creator, GoldLink, Major Lazer, Kaytranada, Miguel, Vince Staples oder sogar Gorillaz gecovert hat, hatte man außerdem schon sehnlichst gewartet. Vor allem deswegen, weil Kali Uchis es schon vor dem Erscheinen des Albums geschafft hatte, dank ihrer ausgeprägten Persönlichkeit als mögliche neue Königin des R&B und des Soul aufzutreten. Noch eine mehr? Nein, nicht doch. Sondern eine waschechte Königin mit einer herrlichen Legierung aus reinem Soulgesang und R&B aus den Neunzigern, mit einem gewissen (early) Pop einer Madonna, wenn nicht sogar mit Spottlust, wie wir es von Amy Winehouse kennen. Eine Stimme, die auf diesem Debütalbum von einem buntgemischten, vortrefflichen Kreis profitiert, zu dem die größten, ihr nahestehenden Stars zählen, etwa Tyler und Damon Albarn, aber auch die Kanadier der Band BadBadNotGood, Kevin Parker von Tame Impala, David Sitek von TV On The Radio, der verschrobene Thundercat, die Soulsister Jorja Smith, die Dap-Kings, Steve Lacy von The Internet, ihr Landesgenosse Reykon oder der legendäre Funkster Bootsy Collins. Auf Isolation verweist die in Los Angeles niedergelassene Sängerin auch auf ihre hispanischen Wurzeln, und zwar dadurch, dass sie in beiden Sprachen singt und sich durch reinen Soul, R&B, Hip-Hop, Latin Pop und Reggaeton hindurchschlängelt. Es gibt mal schmachtvoll sich dahinziehende, mal eindeutig flottere Sequenzen, aber Uchis beherrscht alle Arten von Kontext auf unterschiedlichen Ebenen und präsentiert damit eine verblüffend stimulierende Platte, die keineswegs auf billige und einfältige Art zu beeindrucken sucht. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Hi-Res
On her follow-up to 2018's star-studded, genre-blurring Isolation, Colombian-American singer Kali Uchis unapologetically arrives as a top-tier LatinX stylist. Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞ whose title translates as "Without Fear (Of Love and Other Demons) ∞", is a radical next step. Rather that criss-cross neo-soul, EDM, and Latin pop, Uchis seeks to redefine the "classic." Here she works with more LatinX-centered producers including Tainy and Manuel Lara, as well as Leeds-based pop visionary Josh Crocker. Uchis is fearless in stretching her sound past funky breaks, slippery R&B, and spaced-out jazz tropes to offer bracing evolutionary conceptions of reggaeton, cumbia, and boleros, seamlessly juxtaposing them with her own brand of Latin pop, jazz, and soul. In another assertion of her identity, she sings almost exclusively in Spanish. While there are a number of fine collaborations here, including the futurist Afro-Latin soul of "Fue Mejor" with PartyNextDoor (Jahron Anthony Brathwaite), the spiky trap of "Aqui Yo Mando!" with Rico Nasty, and the trap groove of "La Luz" with Jhay Cortez, the best jams are actually reinventions of vintage boleros such as opener "La Luna Enamorada," a tune that dates back to the 1940s but was a 1964 hit for Cuban rockers Los Zafiros. She slows down the tempo, allows Crocker to thread incantatory beats and Beach Boys-style four-part harmonies into the mix, and follows the melody and form without deviation. "Vaya con Dios" -- an original, not the classic Mexican song -- is rendered with sampled strings, a low-tuned rubbery bassline, and reverbed guitars amid smoky hip-hop beats. When she reaches for her falsetto, she soars. "Que Te Pedi" is a classic Cuban bolero composed by Fernando Lopez Mulens and Gabriel Luna De la Fuente. Introduced by the sound of a radio dial slipping across stations, its stately horns, congas, and bassline frame her most dramatic, passionate singing on the album. "De Nadie" is a seductive Latin soul tune with alternating breaks and hip-hop beats, while self-composed closer "Angel Sin Cielo" is almost psychedelic as it drifts and hovers dramatically with bossa-styled acoustic guitars and her stretched and altered vocal pitches that bring her soprano down to tenor range and jazz phrasing. Sin Miedo (Del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞ marks the spot where Uchis comes into her own, not only as a true song stylist but also as an innovator. © Thom Jurek /TiVo

4 stars out of 5 -- "Dreamy opener ‘Honey Baby (Spoiled)’ is stripped back to to incorporate a calmer melody and twinkling birdsong, while ‘Angel’ is proof of how commanding her vocals have become over the last half-decade." © TiVo
