Kelela has placed new mixtape 'CUT 4 ME' online - listen to it now.
Based in Los Angeles, Kelela Mizanekristos is a mesh of contradictions. A trained vocalist in love with club culture, she fuses 80s synth pop with cutting edge production, an American sensibility but with European tastes.
Releasing a handful of tracks, Kelela was seemingly able to garner huge hype with only a few downloads. Preparing her debut mixtape 'CUT 4 ME' the rising artist called in a few favours.
Assembling a cold as ice team of producers, the beats come courtesy of Fade To Mind and Night Slugs artists such as Bok Bok, Kingdom, Girl Unit, Nguzunguzu, Jam City and Morri$.
Well, now it's here. 'CUT 4 ME' is a deadly introduction, containing some fantastic production and - importantly - a measured, mature songwriting touch from Kelela. Listen to it below and download the mixtape HERE.
