Earlier this fall, Solange rounded up several of R&B’s current notable voices like Sampha, Kelela, Cassie, Jhené Aiko, as well as herself and released the Saint Heron compilation. Now, NYC DJ Kitty Cash is taking on that compilation idea with a mixtape of her own called Love the Free, which she previewed in recent weeks with songs by Vic Mensa, Phony Ppl, and the surprise highlight “Vietnam (Don’t Let It Fall)” by Childish Major. Today, she officially lets the tape loose which, like Saint Heron, showcases original songs by Kelela and Sampha as well an eclectic mix of mellowed out rap features. It’s a dreamy, organic body of work that flows together seamlessly for over 40 minutes.
