Kool & Kass “Homecoming” @ The Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Kool & Kass are peaceful solutions, a syncretic supersoul that harnesses the magnanimity of the Pacific and Atlantic oceons through raps that merely sound like the english language but are in fact both astral and southern hemispheric in spirit and rhythmic nature.
NYC sonic renegade TECLA released her second full-length studio album, We Are The Lucky Ones, on March 19th via Mayimba Music. We Are The Lucky Ones is a kaleidoscopic album that evinces the spectrum of Tecla’s life and musical journey from a child piano prodigy to years singing, rapping, djing, and producing in New York’s underground. We Are The Lucky Ones’ was entirely written by Tecla. The album’s genre-defying sound infuses Tecla’s uncompromising songwriting and rap lyricism with tropical, Caribbean, pop and funk elements.
TECLA is a first-generation New York City (Hell’s kitchen) native-born of Italian and Haitian immigrants. She has gone from being a classically trained child pianist prodigy to versatile performer in hip-hop, reggae, punk-rock, electronic, & funk bands. She has toured throughout the U.S. Canada, Europe, and Asia with Chrisette Michele, Das Racist, Gordon Voidwell, Chairlift, and more.
Exploring her talents on a variety of synth keyboards she discovered and developed her own modern musical sound.
TECLA is understood and known for her genre-mixing melodic compositions, danceable afro/funk/caribbean/tropical/pop production style, and boundary-breaking songwriting and rap lyricism. TECLA has been described as “the new freak Lauryn Hill”, “SWV on acid”, “the Rocktronica Black Cinderella”, “Ritchie Valens meets Pagliacci”.
It is hard to think of anything that TECLA cannot do as a pianist, composer,producer, DJ, singer, and rapper. As the most un-apologetically complicated gender-boundary-breaking female in the pop music circle today, TECLA will only continue to rise to a place where no one has gone before. Stay tuned.
Pegasus Warning’s brand of freakout Noise&B leaves no stone unturned in its quest to continually slash&burn the musical worlds he finds so dear. Expect your expectations to be destroyed, with an upcoming release of new remixes of songs from Woof Ticket EP, videos for “Acoustiq” and “Change” and full length in the fall.
