Video: Ayshay "WARN-U" + Nguzunguzu Remix
Ayshay is the solo project of Senegal-born, Kuwait-raised, and now NY-residing artist Fatima Al Qadiri. The abstract electronic swell of "WARN-U" is "a homage and reinterpretation... of the sacred songs of Islam" that surrounded her youth. Using only her own heavily-processed vocals — which range from ominous chants to hellenic melodies — Ayshay reaches a sound that's both ancient and strangely futuristic. Watch the video for "WARN-U" above and stream LA beatsmiths Nguzunguzu's remix of the track below.
