about

Besides founding her label, Danse Noire, releasing leftfield electronic music from the likes of IVVVO and Vaghe Stelle, Swiss-born, Nepalese-Tibetan electronic producer Aïsha Devi’s latest solo productions are further testament to her personal evolution. The ‘Conscious Cunt’ EP explores different perspectives on womanhood and the dichotomy between materialistic femininity under societal pressure and spirituality.

“It’s an EP about sluts, awareness, death, and women in a patriarchal society… enlightenment, violence, resistance, mothers, daughters, consciousness, Guy Debord, Vedas and eternity. It's also a high-five to my grandmother who raised me and passed away early this year.” - Aïsha Devi

Lead track ‘Kim & The Wheel of Life’ is a whirling melodic vortex of melancholic echoing synths underlaid by deep rumbling kicks that morphs into a vocal-centric piece. The beatless ‘Aurat’, Devi’s second ‘vox tool’ of a series, is an Urdu/Hindi poem written by Pakistani feminist, Kishwar Naheed. Finally, ‘The Saviour on Spilled Blood’, a reference to motherhood, is a slow-building epic, using Devi’s dark, chanting voice to accumulate energy and emotion.

Aisha Devi Switzerland

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.
