Eat The Kiwi Skin
by Isatta Sheriff & Koralle

Isatta Sheriff and Koralle join forces on “Eat The Kiwi Skin“ – a six track EP that unites the talents of the East London MC and the Bologna-based beatsmith. The duo’s first collabo “Laid Back“ was released in 2021 and gained 2,5 million streams to date. Even though the music is made in Italy “Eat The Kiwi Skin“ is definitely a “London thing”!

“It’s a laid back journey into my world in East London.“ Isatta explains. “I paint a picture of my journey so far as a Black female rapper, and the racial politics and experiences surrounding that. It follows Laid Back’s relaxed approach to the stage where I am at making music on my own terms and speaking freely.“

On the EP Isatta is joined by fellow vocalists Lex Amor, Shumba Youth, Awate and Mercy’s Cartel – all ready to eat to eat their kiwi skin.

“The skin is the most nutritious part of the fruit and you have to digest the roughness (harshness) to get the most nurishment.“ the outspoken Eastender explains. “When you do things differently, some people get it and some don’t. Some join in and some just comment from the sidelines. It might not be the easiest (or tastiest) thing to hear but it’s necessary. This could be interpreted in a music and life sense.“

Isatta’s track record includes collabos with Flying Lotus, Oddisee, Arrested Development and Athletic Progression. She hosts a radio show, runs her own label Doctored Sound and works as a music writer.

Koralle is one of the most in demand European beatmakers with a sound rooted in jazz and boom-bap. Since signing with MPM in 2019 he has relased three albums and accumulated more than 30 million streams. His collabo list include Twit One, Summers Sons, Anti Lilly, Kurans and Lesky.

“Eat The Kiwi Skin“ will be available digital and on LP ( including instrumental edits of all tracks for the beat lovers out there). The album artwork is designed by acclaimed Colombian illustrator SagaUno who also did the covers for “The Silhouettes Project and Koralle’s “Beat Kiosk“ album.
