Kesshia Jadine Kumari, aka KESH, has her fingers in every pie. Since selling DIY t-shirts via MySpace at just 17-years-old (since worn by the likes of Kanye West and Mariah Carey), the Croydon-born artist has traversed the worlds of art, design, and disc jockeys to reach a new stage in her career: musician. Her recent singles, Not Gaan Out and Jadines Escape, have expressed both a penchant for experimentalism and an eye for catchy rhythms. With Mind Maze, released late July on her label TENNN, these themes are continued as arpeggiated synths whirr ahead of pounding beats for a six-minute run, wrapped together by vocals reminiscent of early Grimes records. METAL spoke to KESH about forming sonic landscapes over insta-hits, pushing through trauma and divisive NFTs.
