Ate Bit Boy I was introduced to this artist through a FADER music video for the track "Mazda." I was left breathless. It was stunning, brilliant, evocative, and everything I've been looking for in the new IDM movement quietly sweeping through the underground Electronic music scene. Of Matter And Spirit has brought me newfound spiritual connection in a time when the world is filled with too much noise. Favorite track: Mazdâ.

Susanna Maria Hepp Done the annapurna circuit and sitting full of magic memories the last day in kathmandu before leaving back home. It‘s so great to discover Aisha in this state of mind. Earth is a dark gleaming marble and this is a perfect soundtrack for it.

about

Houndstooth's most striking new signing commits a strong debut LP under her birthname, Aïsha Devi, with the 4th world techno-folk interzone, 'Of Matter and Spirit'.

In pursuit of a more personal, borderless sound drawing upon her unique Swiss-Tibetan roots, Aïsha has consistently wowed us over the last few years with a pair of 12"s for her own Danse Noire label, beside a pair of choice linx with Italian new wave stars Vaghe Stelle and Dave Saved for Gang of Ducks.

'Of Matter and Spirit' dilates the ideas of those 12"s and remixes with unswerving vision to shape bold new electronic dimensions bridging the temporal and spatial gaps between T C F's deep trance topographies, the bittersweet dance-pop of Grimes, and Katie Gately's scything sound designs.

Her oxygen-depleted, helium-effected free-soprano pulls remarkably controlled acrobatics over lustrous synths and birds-eye-viewed beats, just as heard in the highlights of her 'Conscious C*nt' single, included in its entriety alongside seven new pieces.

Of those, we're smitten with the Professional Widow-breakdown styled vocal ohrwurm of 'Mazdâ', and relish the mental flashcore roil of 'Numen J' and '1%', but the album's highlights are arguably saved for the giddy post-rave-pop piece, 'Anatomy of Light' and the keening discord and electronically possessed chorales of 'O.M.A.'.

Much more of this, please.

about

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. Her music is spiritual and her live shows are transcendent experiences. A rebel and a radical alchemist who is breaking down barriers and traversing dimensions with her art. ... more
