MOMENTS | Mash-up: Kelela Transforms Into a Neon Animated Character in “A Message” Music Video

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

R&B singer Kelela has announced a May 5th release for her Hallucinogen EP, a six-track EP that will tie us over while we wait for her forthcoming debut LP, which will be out this fall. As a sneak peak at what to expect from her Hallucinogen, Kelela shared her visually stunning music video for “A Message,” an Arca-produced track that “spilled out” of the two in 25 minutes during a three-day intensive collaboration. The Daniel Sannwald-directed video was made with i-D Magazine and transforms Kelela into a virtual creature.

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Arca Made A Chop And Screwed Cover Of Shakira’s  “Hips Don’t Lie”


We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers. 
Venezuelan electronic musician Alejandro Ghersi, better known as Arca, has been on a roll. He recently introduced us to his digital alter ego Xen in his “Xen” music video, and now he’s shared his sinister twist on Shakira’s ‘00s pop hit “Hips Don’t Lie”. The cover remixes Shakira’s voice into a ghostly background presence while the chopped and screwed warped percussion provides the cover with Arca’s signature post-apocalyptic vibe.
