Katy B – Honey

If there’s one artist you should be tuning into in 2016, it’s Katy B. She’s back at it again six years since her smash hit of a debut, On A Mission, and 2014’s Little Red, with her unique mix of dance and pop, although this time she’s brought a plethora of big-name artists along with her on collaborative-heavy album, Honey.

Each track features contributions from a different helping hand, from KAYTRANADA on glittering opening track Honey, to Geeneus and Novelist closing the album on Honey (Outro).

Contributions from Four Tet and Floating Points can be heard on silky club-tastic number Calm Down, while the prince of garage himself, Craig David, teams up with Major Lazer on Who Am I. While Honey might not be the most cohesive album, it’s a minor flaw to forgive in exchange for a set of excellent tracks.
