Following the release of ‘Borderline’ in 2022 with remixes from Jamie Jones, Roman Flügel & Deetron, SeeMeNot now prepares to present her latest body of work: LEADER: Giving Them Their Flowers.

A fusion of techno, melodic, and deep house sounds from some of her favorite producers, LEADER also plays with jazz, soul, and hip-hop sonics as SeeMeNot, who has Jamaican-Canadian roots, pays homage to the strength and wisdom of Black and Brown women who have gone before her. Interwoven with her own songwriting and the unwavering words of other writers and poets, LEADER builds on the interrogations of racism and oppression conveyed by her debut mixtape, LONG OVERDUE: The Sound Of A Revolution, which was dedicated to the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Releasing on Defected in June 2024, the eight-track LEADER mixtape lyrically calls attention to the contributions of our foremothers and how much further we still have to go: “It was really about telling the story of what women have come from, where we’ve gotten to, and where we’re aiming to go, as well as a reminder that we’ve never left – we’ve always made this world spin” says SeeMeNot. To that end, the artist made the decision to infuse a host of different women’s voices across the project. Aminata, Fanny Vannier, and clips from the legendary Eartha Kitt feature over productions from Eli Escobar, Aaaron, Chaim, Moojo, and Ivory.

Preceding the LEADER mixtape release will be a single called ‘Together’ on 8th May, enlisting production from underground Berlin talent Aaaron, permeated by SeeMeNot’s powerful and soulful vocals. It’s an understated record that builds to a rumbling climax thanks to a masterful blend of synth design and percussive ingenuity, sounding intimate, hypnotic, and spirited in equal measure. Providing a rework on this unmissable package, Kitty Amor lends her inimitable brand of Afro-house excellence, adding keys for an even more emotive listening experience. A producer, DJ, and label head whose unstoppable rise has positioned her as a regular in Resident Advisor, Mixmag, and DJ Mag, Kitty’s ‘Together Part II’ further demonstrates SeeMeNot’s superior taste and creative flex.

SeeMeNot’s innate storyteller lyricism is apparent on ‘Together,’ which introduces the LEADER: Giving Them Their Flowers mixtape in a highly intriguing way. Both the single and mixtape promise very special things from SeeMeNot’s debut album, which is set to release in 2025.

SeeMeNot ‘Together’ will be available to download and stream on 8th May 2024 via Defected. The ‘LEADER: Giving Them Their Flowers’ mixtape will follow in June; more details will be announced soon.
