Dancehall icons EQUIKNOXX remix AÏSHA DEVI ‘The Favor of Fire’
- Aïsha Devi – ‘Two Serpents’ (33EMYBW Remix)
- Aïsha Devi – ‘Uupar-Theory’ (Gabber Modus Operandi Remix)
- Aïsha Devi – ‘I’m Not Always Where My Body Is’ (Varg Remix)
- Aïsha Devi – ‘The Favor Of Fire’ (Equiknoxx Remix Feat. Gavsborg & Shanique Marie)
This winter Houndstooth present ‘S.L.F. Versions’ – a set of cutting-edge radical reworks from Aïsha Devi’s widely-praised EP ‘S.L.F.’
Hotly-tipped Chinese scene stalwart 33EMYBW delivers a thunderous percussion-heavy take on ‘Two Serpents’, and rising Indonesian duo Gabber Modus Operandi overhaul ‘Uupar Theory’ with pummelling kick drums encircling frenzied, swirling synths.
Nordic maverick Varg adds jungle breaks and pitched-down crunch to Devi’s pitched-up ethereal voice, whilst lauded JA collective Equiknoxx Music‘s vibey avant-dancehall version gives shout-outs to Devi from vocalists Gavsborg and Shanique Marie.
In addition to acclaim gained for ’S.L.F.’, over the summer Devi toured extensively, performing at some of the world’s most prestigious and forward-thinking events. At Dark Mofo x Atonal in Hobart, Australia she premiered her new AV show ‘∞E=TRv’ – an innovative collaboration with visual artist MFO using light in space and reflective surfaces. Centred around Devi’s transcendence/continuum energy formula and inspired by Planck’s Constant in physics, these special shows have wowed and inspired, as have AV events staged with Emile Barret, and Devi’s solo shows – where audio takes centre stage.
