Denmark based electronic producer Owkey teams up with his Australian counterpart Trove to create a sentimental yet danceable melodic hip hop track to close out the year’s playlist.
Highly begins as a soft, unassuming piano ballad about a lost loved one and gently transitions as the beat creeps in to deliver an infectious dancehall beat that drives the chorus forward. Coming in at under three minutes, the duo’s pop sensibility will leave you hitting replay for another round.
Owkey’s tight production and Trove’s crisp vocals blend incredibly to put this track in that rare middle ground where it would play out just as fun in the club as it would on a long drive with your friends. Highly is a breath of fresh air in a seemingly endless list of maximalist bass/hip-hop concoctions and we’re excited to see what these two mix up next!
