Uniquely synth-kissed production meets with addictive afrobeat rhythms and a clear level of vocal identity – introducing a stylishly recognisable Love Letter, from Phoenix artist Dejxh.
Taking on the all-familiar concept of the love song and recrafting it amidst a hip hop thread of quiet confidence and intimacy, Love Letter has the makings of a creatively free-standing alternative hit.
The dance-hall bounce injects a summertime groove to an initially retro and synth-soaked ambiance, which helps consistently keep things interesting. Weave in that voice, honesty and character united, and the whole thing lights up the Dejxh sound and style in a catchy, genuine way.
On the structural front, the set-up works well, and always we get the simple resolve of the hook – the title-line resounding through the mix.
Nicely done, creatively refreshing and unafraid to get into the depths of love and loyalty.
