Kelela linked up with KAYTRANADA for the second remix from her forthcoming TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES. The techy and spirited “KAYTRANADA_WAITIN_115 BPM” marks the one-year anniversary of its antecedent Take Me Apart and is an unyielding invitation to dance. Sharing the single via Twitter, the singer said, “there are some artists i feel kinship with even tho we’ve never met. @KAYTRANADA has always been one of those artists to me (for many reasons) and so i feel genuinely [hand-over-mouth monkey emoji] about this one. a remix for your hips…enjoy!” Along with the single, Kelela added special-edition merch items to the remix album bundle package available for preorder via her site.

“This project has been evolving in my mind since I was deep in recording ‘Take Me Apart,’” Kelela noted in a statement. She continued, “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.” Arriving October 5th, TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES is executive produced by Kelela herself and Asma Maroof (aka Asmara of Nguzunguzu.
