(Danse Noire)

Laying her Kate Wax moniker to rest after releases on Trevor Jackson’s Output and James Holden’s Border Community, the enigmatic Aïsha Devi set forth on a new adventure with Danse Noire, her own sanctuary-label in 2013 dropping some exciting music. Danse Noire is dedicated to exploring abstracted techno/club structures, and Devi’s own music mines her Nepalese-Tibetan heritage, using her machines to transmute deep meditation. Whether they are guttural or soprano, Devi’s warped pop mantras instruct us to find the unseen through a tense, visceral musical landscape that is often gnarled and industrial as it is danceable.
