Ayesha is a Brooklyn-based artist whose tactile club productions trace an arc across techno, bass, and diasporic influences with devastating results.
Having only released her solo debut on NYC staple Kindergarten Records a year prior, the release of Ayesha’s latest EP ‘Potential Energy’ on UK label Scuffed Recordings has marked the crescendo of a year-long wave of momentum for the artist with no end in sight. Following releases on respected outposts Fever AM and Control Freak earlier this year, and a contribution to rising NYC label Eto Ano’s No Cash In Booth compilation, Ayesha’s latest work has received critical praise from RA (Best New Music), DJ Mag (Fresh Kicks), and the hotly-tipped Lobster Theremin (LT Podcast 176) who join a growing list of international supporters.
Ayesha’s musical approach brings together a love for manipulating found-sounds and a knack for trippy sound design, channeling percussive techno rhythms and UK soundsystem pressure in equal measure. The result is heady, maximal body music tailored to the dancefloor. Similarly, Ayesha’s DJ sets are a menage of styles, reflecting her playful curiosity as a producer and years spent as a working DJ in DC’s club and warehouse party scene. Expect big dancefloor moments, with Ayesha digging deep across techno, breaks, garage, and all the areas between.
