Individually Elysia Crampton and Kelela are forces to be reckoned with, so what do you get when you combine the two and add conceptual artist Adrian Piper into the lyrical mix? "Reference Track TF Scrape" and "Final Exam": two gorgeous, confrontational tracks that differ dramatically in mood, but both feel like swift punches to your proverbial gut on initial listen. Listen to both below ahead of their official release via the Berlin Biennele's Total Freedom-curated Anthem tapetape.
