TWO SERPENTS OF FREQUENCIES CIRCLING AND ELEVATING,
HEALING ATOMIC AND ENERGETIC FORM
Aïsha Devi has announced the release of her sophomore album ‘DNA Feelings’ out 11th May via Houndstooth. In conjunction with the album announcement comes first track ‘Inner State of Alchemy’ and an artist statement entitled ‘DNA Feelings’ (please see the accompanying PDF doc).
No one on this planet sounds like Aïsha Devi. Her voice is her most powerful tool in a repertoire that includes thumping beats and rave stabs, seraphic and guttural throat singing, mystical linguistics and corporeal sonics. Her music is spiritual and her live shows are transcendent experiences. She is a rebel and a radical alchemist who is breaking down barriers and traversing dimensions with her art.
Born by the Swiss alps with Nepalese-Tibetan heritage, a transversal of cultural and spiritual identity was forged, guiding both her personal and creative process as a non-conformed seeker. Devi applies meditation techniques in her approach to production and performance, channelling metaphysical research, ritualistic practice and healing frequencies into an alternate club paradigm. Dislocating pop culture, also evident in her mixes for NTS, FACT, etc., is one of her foundational tools and stylistic signatures.
In 2013 Devi co-founded Danse Noire, a label collective supporting insurrectional club music from around the world, where she released her breakout single ‘Aura 4 Everyone’ followed by ‘Hakken Dub / Throat Dub’ in 2014, giving context to her universe alongside artists including Vaghe Stelle, El Mahdy Jr., J.G. Biberkopf, GIL and IVVVO.
In 2015 Houndstooth released Aïsha Devi’s debut album, 'Of Matter And Spirit', a significant sonic statement rich in political and philosophical subtext. The process led her to collaborating with Chinese visual artist Tianzhuo Chen on videos featuring profane and sacred iconography, as well as theatrical dance performances together with the Asian Dope Boys. Photographer Emile Barret is another longtime artistic collaborator, touring throughout the world with their spatially disruptive audiovisual show. But Aïsha Devi is just as magnetic performing solo. With her mesmeric digital mantras and a captivating stage presence she’s bowled over crowds at CTM, Mutek, Unsound, Boiler Room and countless festivals and venues from Siberia to Mexico and beyond.
