  • Kelela will release a new EP called Hallucinogen on May 5th. News of the release follows the announcement of a deluxe reissue of her debut mixtape, Cut 4 Me, which is set for release in April. Hallucinogen is described as a "six-song cycle that explores the light and darkness of love and sexuality... ranging from tumultuous to blissful." Where Cut 4 Me paired Kelela up with the Fade To Mind and Night Slugs axis, Hallucinogen features at least one collaboration with Arca, who worked with her on "A Message." You can watch a video for the song below. "I met Alejandro [Arca] on a boat in August of 2012," Kelela says. "We sought one another out across a dance floor and within five minutes agreed to meet each other as soon as possible to collaborate. I had one song released to my name and had just heard one of his mixes, but we knew we'd found something in one another. We spent the next three days, 14 hours a day, talking about our artistic visions and how it intersected with our personal lives, making songs that reflected that while dancing around the room to let it all out. About five or six demos were born out of these three days."
