SUZI WU

Born in Blackpool and raised in London, 21 year old British songstress Suzi Wu made an impressive entrance in 2017 with her ‘Teenage Witch’ EP, a bold and vibrant blend of snapping beats, glassy melodies, poppy synths and lo-fi riffs, gaining praise from both sides of the atlantic. On the back of performances at SXSW in Austin, Suzi signed to Def Jam and began work on her latest offering.

Suzi spent her early summers driving back up north listening to her mother’s extensive record collection: from Beastie Boys to Riot Grrrl, Beck to Patti Smith. You can hear all and none of those influences in Error 404, her second EP; the sound of pop turned inside out. With production help from Dave Bayley of Glass Animals, the collection is chopped and screwed, seamlessly blending genres to create a distinctively unique brand of occult pop, with flavours of hip-hop creeping out from beneath the surface.

This spring sees Suzi perform her first US tour dates, bringing an impressive, high-energy festivity that is not to be missed.

CHEEKY

Philadelphia-based pop producer Cheeky compiles field recordings and her Gaia synthesizer with ambient vocals to construct haunting & ambient compositions. The solo electronic project of classically trained pianist Kaylee Sabatino has attracted the attention of WXPN, Stockton University’s WLFR and Philadelphia’s Deli Magazine. Her EP Flora, released last July, draws influence from the artists who inspired her to start producing; notably, Animal Collective and Grimes. She utilizes her own strengths as a vocalist, instrumentalist and audio engineer to produce music in her home studio in Philadelphia.
