KAYTRANADA drops sultry flip of Kelela’s ‘Waitin”
DC-born R&B singer Kelela reached another level last year with the release of her first full LP, Take Me Apart on Warp Records, and now KAYTRANADA takes the project an extra step further with a sultry remix of “Waitin’.” The rework is the first to see light from Kelele’s upcoming remixed version of the album, TAKE ME A_PART, THE REMIXES.
KAYTRANADA brings his trademark effortless and soulful grooves to the original while leaving the lush and wistful soul of the vocals intact. While the initial version was a breathy old-school R&B burner, the Montreal-based producer takes the party to a smokey late-night lounge, complete with plucking strings and an extra dose of ambiance. In the words of Kelela, it’s “a remix for your hips.” Though the full slate of remixes is set to release on October 5, it’s safe to assume KAYTRANADA’s silky take will remain a standout.
