October's Hallucinogen EP on Warp saw LA-based artist Kelela significantly expanding her audience following her debut mixtape, Cut 4 Me, released two years before. It featured production from the likes of Kingdom, Arca, Ma Nguzu, and DJ Dahi; contained beloved singles like "Rewind" (number 36 on our Best Tracks of 2015) and "A Message"; and was released to significant critical acclaim.

This morning, she announced a follow-up Hallucinogen remixes EP due for release on Christmas day, sharing in advance a remix of the DJ Dahi-produced cut "All The Way Down" by grime artist Kahn (known best for collaborations with Neek). Ditching the spiraling synth arpeggios of the original for something a bit more angular and sinister, it's topped off by an inspired verse from NON Records-affiliate GAIKA, which really makes us want to go listen to his recent Machine mixtape.


Stream the remix below, and see the whole tracklist for the remix EP after the jump, notably including that stellar MC Bin Laden baile funk remix of "Rewind," along with some of contemporary club's most exciting names in MikeQ, DJ Spinn, and Divoli S'vere.
