Kelela’s stunning Warp full-length, ‘Take Me Apart’, is getting a collection of reworks of the album, with DJ Lag, Kaytranada, serpentwithfeet, Hitmakerchinx and more involved.
‘LMK (What’s Really Good Remix)’ is available to stream now – a women in hip-hop link-up, it sees Junglepussy, Princess Nokia, cupcakKe and Ms. Boogie jumping on the remix.
Of ‘TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES’, which drops October 8th, Kelela says: “this project has been evolving in my mind since i was deep in recording Take Me Apart. i obsessed over production choices on the album and my only solace was knowing that the songs would be reimagined in this way.”
She continues: “so, it’s not just a bunch of remixes…it’s how my worldwide community of producers and DJs communicate through difference. it’s also about the camaraderie that we experience when we find the overlaps. the same songs get to exist in these alternate realities which means different people get to have a relationship with the music. maybe even with each other.”
