Kingdom Remixes MNDR and Teams Up With Electrik Red's Naomi Allen? Pearl Clutch!

Last month, the homegirl MNDR dropped onto the raddest radio show in the game, Belly of the Beast (Thursdays 8pm ET), on East Village Radio. She hinted that her single, Cut Me Out, was officially remixed by an NYC radass, and here we present you with the full on facts. It's Kingdom. And it's ah so ah good. Also... news of his new single today makes me swoon like a sweltering beast. Holy!




Kingdom, a [dance] producer renowned for his devotion to R&B, has teamed up with Naomi Allen for his next single. Allen makes up one quarter of Electrik Red, the criminally underrated US girl group whose debut album, 2009′s Dream-governed How to Be a Lady, Vol. 1, represents one of the great modern R&B full-lengths. Her and Kingdom’s collaboration is titled Take Me, and is due for release on Fool’s Gold, this coming Tuesday, July 26. On the B-side, you’ll find If You Buck, a “dreamlike crunk instrumental” built around harps and finger snaps. (via)

So much ear love right now.






Electrik Red - I'm That Chick (new song!)

Earlier this year, I heard a snippet of a new Electrik Red song. I'm That Chick, in it's 2 minute clip form, was sufficient to tide me over until this "fresh out the box" jam finally decided to land in my inbox. Today, we wait and want no more! Let's dance.


Back with more swagger than seemingly possible, the freaky foursome are back in the studio recording the follow up to their impressive The-Dream produced debut, How to Be a Lady: Volume 1. Enlisting the assistance of Joi Starr, Midi Mafia and R. City this go 'round, the galls have already completed a number of tracks.

Which brings us to I'm That Chick, a tribal drum-fused track with a wiggling trombone that effectively uses the girls knowledge of technology and blogs to call out their haters. They wail that their egos have no ceiling and they feed off drama. Hell, if that's what keeps their star burning bright, then someone needs to pick a fight with them ASAP.

Yes, we love it...and we are all that chick at some point. No get up out my face and grab this track!

Electrik Red - I'm That Chick (new single teaser!)

Ever since first laying eyes and ears on The-Dream's freaky foursome, Electrik Red, I've been an immediate supporter and oft-times rampant fan of their smooth R&B blends. Their debut album, How to Be a Lady: Volume 1 even went so far as to land on my BE[a]ST Albums of 2009 list.


Far from us to call it fate, but just yesterday, I threw out a random comment on twitter, linking up to my favorite cut of theirs, Friend Lover. So in waking up this morning, and finding out that a new single is in the works, complete with a teaser video, the tweenage beast in us jumped for ever-lovin' joy.

I'm That Chick is full of minimalistic beats and muted trumpet squibbles, seemingly inspired by Jamaican dancehall lifestylin' and wilin'. Quite a departure from their freshman release, the song (in it's 2-minte preview form) has our interest piqued to the highest power. I mean, P is For Power, right? Insert *winkface here. 

I'm such a nerd. These gals are not. Watch the teaser video now.
