The longstanding FADER Mix series presents new, exclusive DJ mixes from our favorite artists and producers.
Leon Kelly has been working the backend for some of your favorite artists for a while now. The New Jersey-based audio and mix engineer has credits on tracks by Flatbush Zombies, Kaytranada, and Danny Brown. He's also become the trusted engineer for Run The Jewels, and Action Bronson. When Kelly sent us his mix, he'd just finished a stint on tour with Bronson (who also painted the portrait for Kelly's mix art), and was heading into the mountains to work on RTJ 4. On his FADER Mix, Kelly lends his ear to a different sound: upbeat dance and house. Peggy Gou opens the mix, and later on a dancified-Chaka Khan makes an appearance, before ending on a cosmic-sounding Skype call snippet.
