Sonically, “Gelato” is as smooth and suave as the image that it conjures.
The triple-team collaboration on “Gelato” creates a titillating prance of oscillating flutesamples and debonair R&B performances. Mora is the first to enter the fray with histongue directly next to the mic, swaying, “Just like gelato I lick it, it’s drippin’, taste like pistachio, you got me trippin’,” with Flavia Abadia as a backing vocalist. After a couple hooks, Mora falls back and Abadia takes the wheel, showing great proficiency singing inboth English and Spanish. Medylandia, the mixing engineer, holds the piece together with a rat-a-tat 4/4 drum loop. This track sways from end-to-end, keeping listeners in a firm grip of ardor.
We’ll be sure to keep an eye out on these artists in the upcoming year!
