The brand new collaboration between Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist and hip hop raconteur Zebra Katz and Warp signed DJ, artist and producer Leila has recently set the internet alight. Their first EP, Nu Renegade, is a dark and powerful compilation that layers growling rap lyrics over trap and bass inspired electronica.
Joining them at Ohm will be US producer Suicideyear. Aside from his solo releases, he has been credited with productions for the likes of Yung Lean, Rome Furtune, Main Attrakionz, Ethelwulf, Pepperboy, Little Pain, and Antwon, and was recently touted as: “arguably the year’s most influential producer without a major label placement” by Fader Magazine. Both as producer and DJ, Prudhomme stands out for his remarkable convergence of trap beats and mid-late century American minimalism as well as his intimate and fresh tastes.
Prudhomme started 2015 with an 11-date European tour that included packed performances in London, Paris, Barcelona and Berlin (Berghain • CTM Festival). Following the tour, Software re-issued his widely praised Japan mixtape on vinyl and CD in March. At SXSW Music Conference in Austin, TX, Prudhomme was recognised by many publications as a must see act with features from the Guardian and FACT magazine. He shared the stage with many rising acts including, Hudson Mohawke, Sophie, Bob Moses and others.
In support of the Japan reissue, Prudhomme recently collaborated with London MC K9 for a feature on a track reissued on SFT, titled "Scarr", plus there are a bunch of brand new remixes for Dark0 and 18+ amongst others.
