In 2016 Lex released Kate Tempest’s new album Let Them Eat Chaos in the US.
Hailing from south-east London, Kate’s early American hip-hop influences are heard throughout her music and can be traced back to her early days as an rapper. The mighty Wu-Tang Clan were a big influence on Kate as was Jay Electronica and UK hip-hop group Task Force. The flavour these influences add to her music have gained her huge respect from the global hip hop community. Since then she has built a loyal following from touring the spoken word circuit for a number of years and playing countless live shows that have seen her take to the stage at Glastonbury and all major UK festivals.
As 2014’s Mercury Prize-nominated ‘Everybody Down’, Kate Tempest’s new album ‘Let Them Eat Chaos’ is produced in its entirety by acclaimed UK producer Dan Carey (Sia, Lianne La Havas, Mr Hudson).
Artwork comes from highly regarded photomontage artist Peter Kennard.
