Suzi Analogue
Suzi Analogue
Suzi Analogue is a rarity within modern-day electronic music: a prolific black woman singer, songwriter, beatmaker and creator of Never Normal Records who draws from house, footwork, rap, reggae & film to make conceptual music that amplifies her special personal stories.

True to her name, Suzi releases much of her music on formats like tape & vinyl on Never Normal Records, which have found success from the Billboard charts to BBC Radio playlists & places like Boiler Room to New York Fashion Week shows, like the widely-celebrated designer CHROMAT S/S18 Serenity collection for which Suzi composed the live score.

Born in Baltimore, MD, she has resided in numerous cities including Philadelphia, Tokyo, New York, & Miami. She's traveled to Uganda, Holland and additional locales around the globe to perform & lead music production courses. Cities influence Suzi's global & inclusive style - fusing soul, hip-hop and vocals with synthesizers and electronic bass instruments into new worlds.

Born Maya Shipman, she dubbed herself Suzi Analogue in tribute to RZA's moniker Bobby Digital. Analogue debuted publicly in 2009 as part of the Klipmode collective along fellow experimental hip-hop producers Knxwledge, Devonwho, and Mndsgn. Suzi's global music collaborations continued as the world tuned into her tracks like Onra "Vibe With U" down to her 7" debut "NNXT" ft "The Program" with Georgia Anne Muldrow & Dudley Perkins. She has innovative recordings with DJ Earl, TOKiMONSTA & more. Suzi Analogue joined SylvanEsso for their 2018 North American Spring Tour.
DJ Earl
DJ Earl
One of the mainstay of Chicago's juke/footwork scene, DJ Earl is a member of the Teklife collective along with genre pioneers DJ Spinn, and the late DJ Rashad. Like those artists he has traveled the global spreading the gospel that is footwork. His tracks combine deep up&down tempo rhythms with heavy bass and manipulated soul, jazz, and hip-hop samples. He began participating in dance battles in 2005, and started making music in 2008 after meeting Rashad and Spinn. He joined their Ghettoteknitianz collective, appearing on their eponymous 12" EP and Bangs & Works, Vol. 2, both released by Planet Mu in 2011. He released numerous digital albums and EPs, Ghettoteknitianz morphed into Teklife, and Earl appeared on Rashad's acclaimed 2013 album Double Cup (Hyperdub), in addition to releasing his debut 12" EP Blue Summer (on Lil Pitch) that year. Following Rashad's untimely death in 2014, Earl appeared on Teklife's Next Life tribute compilation, as well as two of Hyperdub's tenth anniversary compilations. He also collaborated with Lee Bannon and fellow Teklife associates DJ Paypal and DJ Taye. In 2016, Teklife released Rashad's Afterlife (which Earl contributed to), as well as Earl's Open Your Eyes LP, which included collaborations with Oneohtrix Point Never, Moondoctor, and Suzi Analogue. Earl also released a cassette EP on Analogue's Never Normal Records, and the two collaborated under the name WORKFLOWW.
Lord Narf
Lord Narf
Lord Narf is part of a legion of prolific people doing really cool stuff at Awful Records (e.g. Tommy Genesis, ABRA, Father). In October, the rapper released the album Witchcraft. The project is pretty great. Over beats aesthetically similar to Father’s — dark and minimal — Lord Narf plays with vocal fry and lets her deep voice and low-bpm lines loop. It’s a bit hypnotic. Paper discussed the rapper, stating, “her playful, turnt up, off-kilter experimentations with style and mood seem especially well-suited to Awful’s collaborative DNA.”
No Eyes
No Eyes
NO EYES is the project of Seanny Georgie. Created in Atlanta, GA, NO EYES masterminds dreamy, haunted and depressive soundscapes with gameboy in hand. His music has been categorized as nu sad, haunted VGM, footwork, jungle, goth dad, IDM and much more. NO EYES transcends genres.

Escape reality and go 4k ultra with NO EYES.
