This morning, Robbie Celeste woke up in Florence. Things didn’t get too hot and heavy, however, as she soon had to get dressed and go to work. On freshly-released single Tales, his first feature on our pages, the unsigned rapper/producer shares a few snapshots of his life as a sexual tourist, flowing over his own moody keys and studio-tweaked guitar riffs. Though there’s more than a dash of braggadocio in his litany of trysts with exotic women, the artist freely admits that his many conquests are a mask for the lack of true intimacy in his life: ”Trust I don’t really contemplate / I’d rather compensate with a combination of model dates.” Feeling it? More awaits on Celeste’s retroGRADE LP, scheduled to drop digitally on Tuesday, October 22.
