Rising Bay Area singer Kehlani has proved a favourite with SoundCloud producers, particularly since the release of her latest mixtape You Should Be Here earlier this year. The dulcet tones of Kehlani have been a favorite source of inspiration for electronic musicians since she burst on the scene. A quick search of the platform brings up countless bootleg remixes of tracks by the songstress, so it makes a lot of sense that Kehlani would compile a seven track project entitled TSUNAMIXES this week.
Sango, Mr. Carmack, Promnite, Stwo, Mike Gao, Djemba Djemba and No Sleep try their hand at flipping the sultry tunes of Kehlani. The results range from heavy and impactful to ethereal and distant—Mr. Carmack adds layers of aquatic textures on ‘Jealous’ while Stwo underscores ‘Runnin’ with sleepy keys and tumbling percussion.
