Admittedly our interest for Tinashe was sparked through DJ Q‘s awesome remix of 2 On. Admittedly we’re also not generally massive suckers for stadium-pop but there is something to be said about the LA singer.
Media-pigeonholed somewhere between Beyoncé and Aaliyah and already well on her way to superstardome, Tinashe’s work is in many ways similar to that or her ‘underground’ counterparts Kelela or FKA Twigs, with her take on rnb being of the glossy and slightly off kind, albeit perhaps sold under a more commercial-friendly package.
The 21 year old’s debut album Aquarius, which features the production work of the likes of Clams Casino, Ryan Hemsworth and DJ Mustard, was released in October 2014 to very positive reviews and was recently followed by new single All Hands On Deck featuring Iggy Azalea.
Tinashe will be hitting up Berlin for the first time on March 10th at Frannz inside the Kulturbrauerei. Support comes from Bahar, and we have 2 tickets to give-away for the event. To get involved simply leave us a comment and don’t forget to join the Facebook event for more information.
