When we met Sydney rapper Kimchi Princi last year she told us she'd "always known what I wanted." But despite her inbuilt self conviction, the previous 12 months have seen a lot of personal growth: "I've come to understand who I am better. My ideas are different. When I started, I was still trying to grasp who I was — writing was a way to do that."

Her new mix for i-D reflects that conviction. These are the tracks that make her "feel powerful and open in some way," that weave together work from her favourite MCs and producers around the globe to "shade the haters, transcend banality, slip into your element, step into your light."
