The Kenyan-bred recording and performing artist makes a comeback into the music fray with her seductive dance-floor ready anthem, ‘Tek Time’.
Tapping frequent collaborator and idiosyncratic Kenyan beatsmith ÜZRR who is renowned for his extensive work with alternative Nairobi-helmed artists, Steph reminds listeners why she is one of Kenya’s creme rappers and her debut EP ‘Change’ was a critically acclaimed record by media and music fans alike.
‘Tek Time’ is a fun summer bop which sees Steph tease fans one last time before the release of her long awaited sophomore project ‘Proof of Concept’. The song’s hook is an absolute earworm – weaving soft, sweet melodies with heavily flirtatious lyrics. ‘Tek Time’ has all the makings of a lighthearted pop tune and in classic Steph fashion, is laid over an island soundscape that draws inspiration from the West Indies.
Steph’s expansive sound palette and genre-bending sound is evidenced in ‘Tek Time’ where she blends three genres (pop, dancehall & rap) to achieve a honeyed, candy-drenched and sweet single that leaves the listeners at her mercy, begging for more.
The first ever Drill Artist of the Year 2021 at Kenya’s penultimate Hip Hop guild show, Unkut Hip Hop Awards has promised more music is to follow after another breathtaking performance with her sultry single.
