TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES FEAT. KAYTRANADA, RARE ESSENCE & MORE
OUT OCTOBER 5, MARKING 1 YEAR SINCE LAUDED DEBUT ALBUM

Executive produced by Kelela and long-time collaborator Asma Maroof (aka Asmara of Nguzunguzu), TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES is a tenacious collision of pop stature and pure sonic innovation. Conceived in the adventurous spirit of the original album, the group of artists involved represents a global diaspora of innovative emerging and established talent. Here, ‘Waitin’’ gets flipped by none other than KAYTRANADA, with Kelela injecting ever more life into the fan favorite. ‘LMK’ takes a buffer, bossier form, supported by PRINCESS NOKIA, JUNGLEPUSSY, CUPCAKKE and MS. BOOGIE. It is expanded into a ladies-only party full of savage bars and renewed rhythms. Kelela and Warp label-mate GAIKA once again prove to be a formidable duo on ‘Frontline’’ while the quintessential DC Go-Go outfit RARE ESSENCE help her turn ‘Take Me Apart’ into a tender tribute. Never one for half-measures, Kelela has added new vocals to several tracks here helping to create something far more evolved than the average remix collection.  

Fresh from supporting Lauryn Hill last weekend, Kelela has several shows coming through the rest of 2018, including a special performance with The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as part of the fourth season of BSO: Pulse. Kelela appears as the cover star of current editions of Suited and Galore magazines.

“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. 

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.”
