An underground loo turned intimate bar, we spent the afternoon with Sakima in London’s Cellar Door. Thankfully, there was no remnants of public toilet as the emerging London musician took to the venue’s tiny stage to perform the atmospheric ‘Control Me‘.
Produced by another one of our favourites, OBESØN, the song takes on a whole new sound when performed live. With the twitching synths, the soul cleansing sax sounds and the hint of a reggae influenced beat, the true depth of the track’s production really comes to life. Add to that Sakima’s distinctive vocal that adds a level of vulnerability perfect for the words crooned in the chorus, and it’s one of the most beautiful live sessions we’ve had the pleasure of recording. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
