Anyone looking to stave off more political gloom for 2020 need look no further than TSHA’s melodic, escapist electronic music. The London-based DJ/producer makes the kind of globetrotting electronica that put fellow British visionaries Bonobo and Four Tet firmly on the map. In fact, Bonobo included her single, ‘Sacred’ on his 2019 fabric presents album. And TSHA’s recent cut, the propulsive ‘Me You’, takes cues from Four Tet’s ‘Lush’, with Indian santoor swapped for a mbira and Persian lutes.
‘Moon’, from her second EP, Moonlight (released November 2019), is a richly-textured, syncopated and euphoric beast of a track that makes you want to move to a desert island. Not much is known about the background of this self-taught talent, but an increasingly busy live schedule that’s already seen her play Printworks and The Warehouse Project, as well as host radio shows (Rinse FM, Worldwide FM), means we’re surely about to learn a whole lot more.
