Aisha Devi

Laying her Kate Wax moniker to rest after releases on Trevor Jackson’s Output and James Holden’s Border Community, the enigmatic Aïsha Devi set out on a new adventure with Danse Noire, her own sanctuary-label in 2013 dropping an EP called Aura 4 Everyone followed by the 12″ Hakken Dub/Throat Dub in Summer 2014 alongside EPs from boundary blurring artists Vaghe Stelle and El Mahdy Jr. Danse Noire is dedicated to exploring abstracted techno/club structures, and Devi’s own music combines her Tibetan and Nepalese heritage, using her machines to transmute deep meditation. Whether they are guttural or soprano, Devi’s warped pop mantras instruct us to find the unseen through a tense, visceral musical landscape that is often as gnarled and industrial as it is danceable.
