We've been sort of/totally obsessed with Fade to Mind singer Kelela for a while now – she first appeared on our radar with an appearance on Teengirl Fantasy's EFX but it was really her presence on Kingdom's Bank Head (one of our favourite songs this year so far, although don't be surprised if it's listed come December) that made her the object of our affections.
Next month, Kelela will release her debut mixtape via Fade to Mind. It's really got the makings of something special – the 13-track mixtape, titled 'CUT 4 ME', is bolstered by production from the Fade to Mind and Night Slugs crews, with Kingdom, Nguzunguzu, Bok Bok, Girl Unit, Jam City and more all offering their services behind the desk. The mixtape will be available "for free and for pay", according to Kelela herself.
Peep the tracklist and production credits below, along with the artwork. Earlier this year, Kelela joined Bok Bok for a short grime set.
