Published Jan 24, 2013Ethereal New York hip-hop experimenter Kilo Kish built up a buzz last year via her Homeschool EP and recent features on tracks by the Internet and Childish Gambino. She's now announced she'll follow up that material next month with a new mixtape called K+.
A press release notes that Kish will deliver K+ February 7 as a "collaborative multimedia project" that revolves around the "process of making music." While a tracklisting has not yet been offered up, the song cycle is said to feature guest spots from Odd Future's Earl Sweatshirt, Childish Gambino, SBTRKT, A$AP Ferg, the Internet, and more. Kish has also unleashed the first preview track, "Creepwave," which was produced by CRONOS and features guest bars from Flatbush Zombies. You can stream the minimalist and cloudy soundscape down below.
Just ahead of the mixtape's release date, Kish and some of her friends will unveil artwork tied to K+ on February 1 at Los Kabayitos Theater in New York.
"I have designed a space to represent this, filled with notes, drafts, inspirations, photos and videos," she said of the visual arts component.
Kish added of the upcoming tape: "My songs...include layers of sound spanning from at-home demos to professional studio recordings. This is in an attempt to purposely highlight our imperfections and reject the finality of 'the finished product.' We are all always working and making changes and my project represents this elementary idea."
