Kelela is releasing her game-changing debut mixtape 'Cut 4 Me' on vinyl and CD for the first time.
It deserves it: 'Cut 4 Me' was originally released as a free download in 2013, but its impact on new music has been vast – it's probably one of the most influential records to have been released in the past few years.
The new edition of 'Cut 4 Me' will also feature remixes by members of the Fade to Mind and Night Slugs crew, many of whom will be reworking tracks that they produced in the first place.
"One of the best things about being part of this crew is that the producers have continued to explore and re-imagine 'Cut 4 Me'," Kelela says in a press release, "In the last year and a half the edits and remixes they've sent through have continually brought new life to the material, so much that I've often incorporated these versions into my live sets… I'm beyond happy that there's finally a tangible, touchable way to own the songs, remixes, and the beautiful artwork."
She goes on to talk about future plans – she's currently finishing up a new EP and her debut album, which will feature many of the producers from 'Cut 4 Me'. "It's beautiful to have this opportunity to dip back into the rich pool that is the mixtape and to hear where a lot of those relationships started." N'awww.
