Allow us to introduce Pell. The New Orleans-bred and Starksville, Mississippi-based rapper (he was forced to relocate in 2005 by
Hurricane Katrina) is quickly making his mark with a distinctive mixture of rap and southern singjaying–over an equally distinctive
mixture of trap and dubby trip-pop that forms the rhythmic bed for his post-Drake flow. Call it the Future Sound Sound of NOLA,
or call it–as a recent FADER premiere of his track “Eleven:11″ did–’dream rap’, the ambient soundscapes he’s been dropping on
us lately are just a taste of the somnambulatory beats and rhymes on Pell’s forthcoming release Floating While Dreaming which
features more collaborations with Danish electronika producers Tomas Barfod and Jeppe Kjellberg.
