One of our favorite full-lengths of the past few years, new and improved.
Originally a digital-only release, Cut 4 Me (Deluxe Edition) will also be available on vinyl and CD. The tracklist is below; the second disc features remixes by Fade to Mind / Night Slugs producers Kingdom, Jam City, Girl Unit, Nguzunguzu, Rizzla, MikeQ, Neana and Massacooramaan.
“Hearing the Cut 4 Me instrumentals for the first time was an experience I’ll never forget,” Kelela writes on Facebook. “They called it “Sad-Sexy-Scary” and it was the stuff I dreamt my sonic home would be made out of.
“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. 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.”
Kelela is currently finishing an EP and a debut album alongside “a lot” of the producers on Cut 4 Me. Stream Kingdom’s “Destruction Before Paradise” mix of ‘Enemy’ below, via Pitchfork. FACT spoke with Kelela back in 2013 about moving beyond imitation, studio serendipity, and her dream productions.
