Singer and songwriter Kelela released “Kaytranada _Waitin_115BPM,” a Kaytranada remix of her original song “Waiting.” The original track was featured on Kelela’s debut album ‘Take Me Apart,’ which released in October of last year.
The track features DJ and record producer Kaytranada’s eccentric and musically complex remixing, giving the song a new and original feel. “Kaytranada _Waitin_115BPM” is a single from the upcoming remix compilation ‘TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES,’ which will be executively produced by Kelela. As the title suggests, the project will be a remix of all of the songs on Kelela’s original LP. Earlier this month Kelela released the remix to the song “LMK” from the original album. “LMK Remix” features bars from Princess Nokia, CupcakKe, Junglepussy, and Ms. Boogie.
‘TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES’ is anticipated to bring a new feel to the Kelela’s already unique, new age R&B style. She revealed that she had been planning the compilation since before the release of ‘Take Me Apart.’ She stated: “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.”
Set to release on October 5th, almost exactly one year from the release of the original ‘Take Me Apart,’ ‘TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES’ will be accompanied by merch that is now available for preorder.
