Back in April 2011, Mad C presented her first UK solo show, MadABC, at Pure Evil gallery. The show involved turning up at the Pure Evil gallery in Shoreditch and then being ferried via a constantly running fleet of taxis to a warehouse where she had turned things rather red.

German graffiti artist MadC is best known for her massive wall productions, balanced letters and her passion for details. She has travelled the globe and painted her name in more than thirty countries.  Mad C will show canvases and sketches focusing on street typography and graffiti alphabets in dedication to her recently published book Street Fonts – graffiti alphabets from around the world (Thames & Hudson).

kanga_fingers“On the heels of her official remix for Sub Pop’s clipping., KANGA brings us the first track
from her upcoming debut EP, Dissonance., the track is called Vital Signs:

“Kanga wields the power of objectification. Fetish, sexuality, angst, and melancholy take shape, bringing the dark miracle of life to song. Mechanization & melody are made from fragments of Kanga’s own flesh and soul to become her objects of creation. Meanwhile, Kanga herself prefers to remain obscured as an artist; not in complete opposition to being an icon, but to explore the tension between the cold world of industrial and the hyper-surreal feminism of pop. Hers is a mirror world where objectification humanizes the object.

Amidst clockwork production and often severe lyricism, Kanga opens a door to the listener’s humanity as well. On her debut ep, daydream melody and bubbly hooks are an invitation to join Kanga in these otherwise cold observations.

‘Dissonance’ drops on Oct 30th, via the artist. She will perform that night at the Highways Performance Space in LA for the release party of the film ‘Excess Flesh’. Also performing will be True Neutral Crew, Yo! of BLKHRTS, and a new band from Jonathan Snipes of clipping”.

More tomorrow… or later… or something…. maybe
