kelz is the alias of Kelly Truong, an emerging Vietnamese-American vocalist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist currently making waves with her magnetic and dreamy indie pop songs that blend warm electronic production, meditative guitar picking, and airy vocals. Sharing her debut single "Passerby" in 2019 and an early demo of her recent standout single "Guitar + Peaches" in 2020, kelz soon signed to Bayonet Records who just released her debut full-length album 5am And I Can't Sleep on May 6th.
Describing her mix as "dreamy," "mellow," and full of "electronic waves," kelz's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight In A Perfect World is a blissful journey through lo-fi house grooves, low-key bedroom R&B, pillowy pop, and more. These are songs that she often plays when she can't sleep in order to try to fall asleep, but she just ends up staying awake and getting lost in the music. Perfect late-night sounds for the restless music lover.
