People often say it's better to do one thing well than do many things just okay. But, every once in a while, there is a talented multihyphenate who storms in on the scene and creates a whirlwind of lasting impressions — literally, everywhere. Kilo Kish is one of those rare finds.
This 23-year-old has already marked her territory in the fashion world as a designer, visual artist, and an ad-campaign model. But, it's Kish's music that's got people tuning in. As a rapper and songwriter, Kilo has already collaborated with the likes of Childish Gambino and Chet Faker on singles, and she's also released an EP, Homeschool. And, now, she's schooling us and H&M with an eclectic playlist of jams we should be listening to. Press play below to hear your new favorite on-the-go mixtape!
How do you discover new music?
"Usually through word of mouth or hearing someone play something while I’m out. I rarely look at music blogs."
How would you describe your music vibe?
"Right now, it's very conceptual. I enjoy working on all aspects of a project from start to finish, from songwriting to artwork."
What's the coolest or freakiest thing you've seen on the dance floor while you were performing?
"Hmm, probably twerking fans in Philly."

Tell us about your most trusted headphones.
"I use a lot of different headphones, for different reasons. My most trusted are probably Audio-Technica ATH-M50 or Sennheiser. I think I use the standard Apple earbuds the most though."
What's the last song you Shazam’d?
"I’ve never Shazam’d in my life. I just go on forever not knowing any artist names, haha."
