PRINCESS NOKIA is a musical collaboration between Destiny Ortiz and Christopher Lare. The pair met through a mutual friend and began to working together in early 2013. Looking to build a new genre, while embracing existing subgenres, PRINCESS NOKIA has created a neo-futuristic sound that is both relevant and avant garde.
The Afro-futurist mix of Hip-Hop/R&B/Punk that is Tunde Olaniran returned with his first full-length album on Quite Scientific entitled Transgressor on August 7th, 2015. The record showcases Olaniran’s masterful approach to mixing intelligent and conscious commentary with a slew of personal revelations and heartfelt declarations. Propulsive entries like “Namesake” and “KYBM” instantly signify the hi-energy dance-pop feel that has brought attention to Olaniran in the past, while tracks like “Let Me Go”, “Up & Down”, and “Everyone’s Missing” make clear his abilities to be at once gut-wrenchingly emotional, candidly playful, or deadly-serious.
