Featuring our first artist this month alongside naasMUSIC Electronic.

During the week we will be featuring more of her tracks & mixes as well as doing an interview with her.

Throwing Shade, hailing from London and currently on a musical sojourn in South Africa, makes celestial sounds, marked with dark RnB grooves and layered with warped vocals that make you want to close your eyes and dance. Love step.

Over the last six months, Throwing Shade has been making her mark on the South African electronic scene and bringing her London sounds to the Southern Hemisphere. On the back of a few shows and a couple of radio interviews, she has recently caught the attention of Naas Music, based in Cape Town, who are putting out the first official Throwing Shade release on April 1 2013.

In London she’s played alongside acts such as Mykki Blanco, Physical Therapy and SOPHIE at the well-known warehouse parties thrown by the artists’ collective known as Lucky PDF. She also runs a monthly club night in London known as SHEIKHA, together with fellow producer and friend Felicita, the aim of which is to bring together a group of friends who are all making music on the local scene, and to let them share their sounds in intimate and organic surroundings.

Throwing Shade has been quietly accumulating a following on the internet and after hearing her soundcloud, Wonderland magazine have commissioned her to create a mix for the launch of their April 2013 issue. She was also recently interviewed as part of a music documentary being put together by Vice and Boiler Room.

The months ahead look set to be eventful for this new music maker and Throwing Shade will be crossing continents with her next two live performances, playing at the Assembly in Cape Town on 10 April, and at Club Couture in London on 19 April.
