LAFAWNDAH
LAFAWNDAH
Globetrotting singer/producer Yasmine Dubois has only been making music as Lafawndah for a short time, but already she's causing ripples worldwide with her futuristic take on global electronic music. After packing in her jobs as a gallery curator in Mexico City (where she also played drums in the all female band Nidada and New York), the half-Iranian, half-Egyptian musician moved back to Paris, after previously having studied at La Sorbonne, to concentrate on honing her "ritual club music," influenced by Nina Simone, Grace Jones, Missy Elliot, Kate Bush, traditional Middle Eastern singers, dancehall queens and the Night Slugs label's modernist take on grime and bass.

For her debut self-titled EP Lafawndah flew to Guadeloupe to work with Portuguese producer Garagem Banda, Emily King, and zouk veteran Jean Claude Bichara. Like her acclaimed 2014 debut EP, the recording of Tan began on an island with the same minimal studio set-up. This time, with collaborators Nick Weiss and Tamer Fahri, it was Fire Island off the South Shore of New York rather than the Caribbean island. Soon enough proceedings hopped to the totemic island of Manhattan, where she embodied the role of executive producer by folding the like-minded ADR and L-Vis 1990 into her process to help realize a warped vision of esoteric industrial rhythms fused to an aggressive palate of nomadic atmospherics.

Tasha The Amazon
Tasha The Amazon
A bomb in a china shop.

Toronto's Tasha the Amazon is an artist, producer, and bad gyal. Notorious for rude stage antics and warehouse parties shut down by police raids, her unconventional lyrics deal as much with partying and hood mischief as they do with anarchy and civil disobedience.

After cutting her teeth in collabs and collectives, the German-Jamaican powerhouse released her debut solo project, FiDiYootDem, to critical acclaim in late 2013.

Hundreds of thousands of video views and streams later, Tasha is preparing to release her forthcoming EP, Die Every Day, in the fall of 2016.

Produced by herself and partner Danthrax (together, they form the production duo Bass & Bakery), Tasha's new music experiments unapologetically with the future of hip hop. Meet the new school.
