Multi-instrumentalist and producer, Kaelin Ellis, has dropped the new single ‘Its Been A Minute’, marking the third release to be taken from his upcoming album ‘You Are Here, Start.’, set for release on June 21st via Fool’s Gold Records. 

This laid-back third single is the first instrumental to drop off of the project, in contrast with the two previously released cuts; the eclectic R’n’B sounding ‘Celebration’ with TOBi, and the raw, gritty offering of ‘Ain’t You Mad’ featuring Buddy, Guapdad 4000 & Kenny Mason.

Raised on a diet of homegrown Gospel, Madlib and Flying Lotus, Lakeland, FL-based Kaelin Ellis deftly straddles the labels of funk, hip hop, electronic, and space age jazz, creating a sound as fresh and exciting as the young producer himself. 

Already a multi-Platinum musician with over ten years of experience, the genre-defying creator has worked on music with Lupe Fiasco, Joyce Wrice, and K-Pop superstars EXO to name a few. On top of these public releases, he has also worked on music behind the scenes with Monte Booker, BROCKHAMPTON and Channel Tres.

On the live side of things Kaelin has toured with Soulection affiliate Sango, performed an NPR Tiny Desk concert, played at Brownies and Lemonade as well as Euphoria, SXSW, Vortex, HOODOO and Gasparilla festivals. He’s now announced a new run of shows to mark the release of the LP where he’ll be playing in LA, NYC and DC – for more info and tickets, click here.

Having already received praise from the likes of USA Today, Okayplayer, Complex and others, 2024 is looking bright for Kaelin Ellis.

And for the producers out there, Kaelin has opened a remix competition for creators to rework ‘Its Been A Minute’ – find all the details here and get involved.
