Preview Aïsha Devi’s Debut LP on Houndstooth
The Danse Noir founder and Border Community affiliate's 'Matter and Spirit' LP will arrive in fall.
Danse Noir founder Aïsha Devi (formerly known as Kate Wax) has unveiled details of her debut album, Matter and Spirit. Named for Devi’s grandfather, a physicist and CERN employee, the album was reportedly inspired by their conversations on “sound, vibrations, and the parallels between physics and spirituality.” Its 10 tracks span a “moving landscape of interconnected themes and experimental techniques,” with “vortices of haunting sounds created from [Devi’s] own vocals and production.”
“My process of creation takes its source in meditation, mantras, shamanism, healing frequencies,” Devi says. “The idea is to trigger a social and spiritual awareness through music.” Matter and Spirit follows her latest EP, Conscious Cunt, and drops on October 2 via Fabric-affiliated label Houndstooth. Its lead single, “Mazdâ,” premiered via FACT yesterday and can be streamed in full below.
