Kelela has announced that she will play a surprise show with guests at Electrowerkz in London on Thursday 14th November 2013. Tickets are now availble.
Kelela Mizanekristos is a Los Angeles-based vocalist and songwriter, born and raised outside of Washington DC. KELELA never received formal vocal training in her youth; instead she experimented with a range of vocal styles before finding her own sound in the music emerging out of LA's underground, catching the attention of LA-based producer and Fade to Mind label head Kingdom, leading to their recent anthem "Bank Head."
Kelela's debut mixtape, the 13 track CUT 4 ME, features production from Fade to Mind and Night Slugs artists Bok Bok, Kingdom, Girl Unit, Nguzunguzu, Jam City and Morri$, melding the collective's signature production with Kelela's songwriting, songs equally at home in the club as in the bedroom.
Confronting both the ecstatic highs and painful lows of relationships, CUT 4 ME is a deeply personal body of work that establishes Kelela's unique vision for songwriting and production. Situated in a universe where R&B and Pop conventions are both celebrated and challenged, Kelela's songs are the result of her passion for the synergy between the vocalist, producer, and DJ. What started as a small batch of vocal freestyles over existing instrumentals grew into a full fledged suite of collaborative productions. After hearing those initial demos, the producers supplemented with new tracks and CUT 4 ME was born.
