First Listen: Celestial Trax and Rozay Labeija – ‘Got the Body Out’ ft. Dai Burger

Brooklyn-based Rinse and PTP signee Celestial Trax collaborates with New York MC Rozay Labeija on new EP Roaches – a suitably timed call for strength and solidarity against oppressive forces. Released on Loveless Records’ new club imprint Materia, the five-track EP features appearances from Keijaun Thomas and Dai Burger, the latter of which we’re bringing you today.

‘Got the Body Out’ channels multiple styles into a fierce club anthem. Dembow rhythms propel the track as Labeija and Burger deliver empowering, ballroom-inflected verses on the resilience of sisterhood. There are references to hip hop from previous generations (Shake your body body/Move your body body), but this is very much the sound of modern club music, fusing a range of influences into one unstoppable energy.

The Roaches EP is out now on Materia. Grab it here.
