ABOUT THE ARTISTS

DOOMSQUAD
All hail the third album from Toronto’s ardent, art-dance sibling trio DOOMSQUAD. Released on Bella Union and Royal Mountain Records on May 10 2019, Let Yourself Be Seen is the most assertive, ambitious, groove sodden declaration of intent yet from Trevor, Jaclyn and Allie Blumas: the sound of dancefloor believers and thinkers firing on all personal and political fronts, at a time when we need it most.

PHÈDRE is an electronic duo from Tkaronto/Toronto, Canada. Originating in experimental-pop realms, their richly-textured compositions have grown into instrumental sets of high-bpm rhythmic soundscapes, performed live using sequencers and synthesizers. The ever-changing bass-heavy sets pay tribute to club, breakbeat, jungle and techno, while maintaining Phèdre’s own unique sense of musical beat exploration. Phèdre has toured in Can/USA, Mexico, EU/UK, Japan/Korea/Taiwan, Philippines, Russia, and Lebanon. Recent shows include support slots for Marie Davidson, Molly Nilsson, Anika and Simo Cell.

BACKXWASH is a trans rapper(they/them/she/her) from Zambia whose music provides an eccentric and aggressive social commentary. Topics include blackness and queerness, as she strives to bring an intersectional perspective. Inspired by Missy Elliot and Redman, BACKXWASH is known for their complex lyricism on weird instrumentals.
