Kelis – “Bless the Telephone” (Trinidad-Senolia Deep Remix)


Shouts going out to all producers and remixers using phone noises in their music.

Mateo Senolia and KCRW’s Garth Trinidad are Trinidad-Senolia.



If you need a refresher on the best telephone tones used in modern music, there’s this.


There’s also—if you listen carefully at 0:44—this.


And, erm, well, this.




In addition to the esteemed canon above, there’s also now this fantastic mellow house version of Kelis’ “Bless the Telephone,” originally recorded by Labi Siffre.








Responsible for this remix is Trinidad-Senolia, a duo consisting of Los Angeles’ KCRW host Garth Trinidad and Mateo Senolia.

Kelis‘ new album, Food, is produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and is out now on Ninja Tune Records. It is already one of my favorites of 2014.
