Kelela – LMK [Video]

Posted on August 9, 2017

Here goes Kelela's official video for "LMK", directed by Andrew Thomas Huang.

"LMK" is a battle cry and the video, directed by longtime Björk collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang, is a surreal visual that sees Kelela moving through hazy, club-like environments with authority and a take-no-prisoners attitude.

Reflecting on the video, Huang says, "We wanted make a video that showcases the multiplicity of who Kelela is and who she has the potential to be. The video is essentially a grand unveiling featuring Kelela wearing different wigs and guises as she pushes through the club with her friends, ultimately revealing herself at the end of the video. The message of this video is empowerment: it's for the girls, for anyone whose heart has been trampled on and deserves to go out and feel good about themselves. It's a call to action, demanding to be taken and to be quick about it. This is the reason why we love Kelela - she's making herself vulnerable and kicking down doors in the process."

Kelela's debut album "Take Me Apart" is out October 6th via Warp Records.

Rhythm Roulette w/ London On Da Track [Video]

Posted on August 9, 2017

For this episode of Rhythm Roulette, MASS APPEAL met up with one of Atlanta's most influential producers, London On Da Track. As a mainstay of the Atlanta production world, London has played an instrumental role in the development of Young Thug's career, crafting some of the greatest hits in the enigmatic Atlien's catalogue. His time with Thugger has blessed the world with standouts such as "Lifestyle," "About Da Money" and "Check." Let’s also not forget London's work with other Atlanta heavyweights, as he was the mastermind behind 21 Savage and Drake's collab "Sneakin'" as well as countless bangers with artists like French Montana, Gucci Mane, Birdman, 2 Chainz and many others.

Helping to define the soundscape coming out of Atlanta, who knows what the sound of trap music would be without London? True to his discography, London decided to bring the trap to Rhythm Roulette. In that spirit, he took his chances, pulling three records from A1 Records in New York.

London ended up with Phyllis Hyman's "Living All Alone," Rahsaan Roland Kirk's "Blacknuss" and a house record from Jesse Saunders. Making quick decisions, London ends up sampling Rahsaan Roland Kirk's cover of Marvin Gaye's classic "What's Going On."

Nyck Caution & Kirk Knight On Sway In The Morning [Video]

Posted on August 9, 2017

Nyck Caution and Kirk Knight join our studio today at Sway In The Morning to talk about their new project, "Nyck @ Knight!" The two artists have been in the game for quite some time now, so respectably they were able to grow and nurture their work. Nyck and Kirk come to the table and discuss how they work, and why they pick quality over quantity.

As young artist, the two have grown into very mature young men. Kirk explains to Heather B, that sometimes its hard for newer acts to realize that people you watch when you’re growing is real. He relates this to the studio, because even now he still finds himself shocked to be in the position he is at today. As Kirk goes on, he discusses how he got into music with Sway. He explained, that he was influenced by the track, “miss fat booty,” by Mos Def which stayed in his mind until he met Joey to pursue producing.

As the vibe glows throughout the room, Nyck talks to the cast about how he got into Pro Era. Nyck discusses that he performed at a rock show, back in high school which caught the attention of Steez, as he watched from the back of the show. Later him and Steez would record at Nyck’s studio, and finally as Nyck’s previous collective began to separate he then formed a closer relationship with Pro Era.

Each artists goes into detail on how this project is different from both their old projects. As they talk about the project, Sway ask them to break down the lyrics to “No One Seems to Care.”
