Carrie Wilds mixtape

Carrie Wilds – Carrie Wilds:

New York based label, Мишка Records (or Mishka Records, for those of you not down with the Cyrillic alphabets), recently signed their first female R&B artist, Carrie Wilds. Wilds just dropped her self-titled mixtape for the label which features the singer (and she’s a SINGER, not a whisper-singer) over some electronics-heavy beats. Check out her interpretation of the classic tune “Wild Is The Wind” which has also been covered by Nina Simone, David Bowie, and countless others. Guests on the mixtape include Roots Picnic headliner Mr. MF’n eXquire and Cody B. Ware. Beats come courtesy of Araabmuzik, Lunice, and more!
