Thomas Xavier Kenney – “Link Up” ft. Baraka

Thomas Xavier Kenney and Geoffrey Dean, aka Baraka, two immensely talented musicians in their own right, joined forces last week on a new song, “Link Up.”

The entirely instrumental track is, according one of TK’s Instagram posts, an “ode to the link up, the coming together of homies,” and that sentiment shines through in the sound.

“Link up” begins with a hint of dreamy vaporwave and some tingly synth. Groove-heavy guitar brings a grounded sensuality to the atmosphere of the track. The mood is chill yet energetic, both musicians clearly mastering an ability to be at once smooth and crisp, laid-back yet experimental. 

The production choices like otherworldly echoes add a hint of ethereality to the song.

“Link Up” is an exciting collaboration from two inimitable artists, and it’s sure to be a track we continue to dig as the weather heats up and we spend more time meeting up with friends and seeing where the night takes us.
