KeleLA – The Nu Nubian Goddess


Kelela Mizanekristos is a nubian goddess set to take the electronic, hip-hop, R&B and pop worlds by storm.  I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the DC native, Los Angeles-based vocalist and songwriter for several years and have witnessed her artful, standard influenced vocal expression find its home over the carefully crafted beats from the family at Fade to Mind.

After performing on select dates and showcases with the Fade to Mind crew, and freestyling over some of their existing instrumentals – the concept and chemistry for Kelela’s mixtape was born.   Kelela’s experimental approach to vocals gelled perfectly with Fade to Mind label head Kingdom’s emotional beat construction – and greatness has now been memorialized on her forthcoming mixtape, CUT 4 ME.  The 13 track opus features production from Fade to Mind and Night Slug family members Kingdom, Bok Bok, Girl Unit, Nguzunguzu, Jam City and Morri$ – delivering a fierce soundtrack of sexual slumber party playlist must haves that would please the Low End Theory crowd.    Cut 4 Me is out October 1st – tracklist below the album art.
