Toronto's Hip Hop scene has heavily evolved into a woozy, sensitive mixture of Rap and RnB. After notable acts such Drake and PartyNextDoor revolutionized the sound that has created subsequent lanes for upcoming artists to express their creative genius, some have adapted this soundwave, only to make it more convincing and noteworthy. Coming out of the 6 with a fierce flow and hard production to match, we are super exited to introduce you to one of these dynamic artists. Our Artist Watch pick of the week is no other than Tasha The Amazon.
"Toronto's Tasha The Amazon is a Rising Star" - Pigeons & Planes
Known for her epic warehouse parties and wild energetic stage presence, The German-Jamaican powerhouse is not only an artist, but a producer and "bad gyal" who is re-imaging the image of women in music. Her style is ushering in a refreshing wave of freedom for upcoming artists.
She just released her latest project, Die Every Day which was entirely self-produced with Danthrax (together known as Bass & Bakery) featuring a range of unconventional lyrical content, thumping beats and verses that serve as a dive into her creative influence. Fueled by high energy and intensity, Tasha's style is refreshing in this era of music. She is boundless, unapologetic and proves her affinity for artistry throughout the project and her intoxicating perspective on music.
"The stronger she roars, the more she shifts previous interpretations of women in a previously male-dominated medium." - Afropunk
