Motown's Mila J, now known as MILA joins with LA duo BC KINGDOM on a project that combines MILA's heavenly smoky vocals with Logan and Zuo's perfectly pitched instrumentals. The result is Press Start, six sumptuously crafted tracks that range from the delicate (Sad N Blu) to the experimental (the eastern overtones of Ninja), to the side-eye shrug of I Used To Love You.

"This has been a fun and liberating experience. I was able to tap into a deeper / darker side of myself that I've been wanting the world to see and hear. BC KINGDOM understood where I wanted to go sonically and the chemistry with them was undeniable. We blended so well with one another. Expect more from this musical marriage," MILA tells us. "Press Start is just the beginning for us," Logan and Zuo point out. "We had an amazing time recording these songs with MILA; we experimented with so much music and so many different sounds. It is truly the perfect mesh of both of our worlds. We always wanted to work with a female artist and being LA natives, we knew MILA was the perfect fit. Her voice and tone are so distinct that it added another dimension to the songs. This is the perfect up-and-down love story soundtrack for the summer." Press pay and prepare to fall in love
