TĀLĀ – As I Am (Feat. Atiye)


We’re digging “As I Am” (or Oldugum Gibi in Turkish) the latest track from rising-star London artist TĀLĀ; which is also the last single to release off her excellent “Malika” project (that includes B3 covered 100% fire Banks joint collaboration “Wolfpack”). With a touch of some calming cosmic mid-tempo atmospherics, “As I Am” is perhaps a bit more mellow and straightforward than the other tracks from the EP, yet it still features TĀLĀ’s signature otherworldly artistic ferocity and complexly-intwined exquisitely composed meld of beautiful asymmetrical world beats. We totally adore Atiye’s fiesty mantra-based lyrics as well! Great collaboration. “As I Am” is a superb way for TĀLĀ to top off one of the year’s best EPs (one that may make it to our best of 2015 list). Reviewed by Erin Shay.
