Khazali makes music that is impossible to place.
There’s a clear R&B element, with his soulful vocals pointing to the greats – D’Angelo, Marvin Gaye – while applying a uniquely modern vantage point.
Alongside this, however, is a nod to club culture, with Khazali’s songwriting arriving soaked in electronics.
Pointed digitalism with a touch of soul, his new single ‘Better With The Devil’ finds a neat sense of balance between these two poles.
Slow-moving and graceful, his alluring vocal sits on top of those fuzzy melodies and the clipped drum sounds.
The video was filmed at a party house, and unfolds into something surreal, and draped in atmosphere.
Khazali says: “‘Better With The Devil’ is that warm, sober feeling. You feel like you’re cruising down a desert road in a vintage car. It might not technically be summer anymore, but I’m not rolling the windows up just yet.”
Tune in now.
