COLD SPECKS
COLD SPECKS
Ladan Hussein, known on stage as Cold Specks has returned with her most personal work yet. The artist recognized for her twistedly enthralling lyrics and distinctive soulful voice, has dug deep and returned to her roots. In this masterful body of work, Cold Specks intimately explores her identity as a Somali-Canadian woman. She's unveiled and allowed herself to stretch her palette thematically. The rawness that's deemed Cold Specks a dark soul, has revealed itself to be a cathartic after glow, illuminating the sort of light born through healing.

Like waves thrashing in a chaotic sea in the middle of nowhere, Fool's Paradise encapsulates the naturalness of existing during difficult times. We find Ladan rejoicing the survival of those she loves while mourning for the sorrow that continues to linger after it has beckoned its doom. Far gentler than her electrifying sophomore Neuroplasticity and her midnight debut I Predict A Graceful Expulsion, Cold Specks has honed her artistic agency and has invited you to bear witness.
LA Timpa
LA Timpa
LA Timpa, Nigerian born producer and songwriter, immigrated to Canada as a child. He spent his formative years shaping his craft surrounded by farmland, religion and static suburbia. As foreign seasons drifted by, endless hours were dedicated to the dreaming up of sounds, brands, characters, art, clothes and films with his brother. It was diaspora dreaming, dancing divinely between their worlds. In 2015, LA Timpa began diving into field recordings he’d collect from aimless walks with a tape recorder, everything from a cat meowing to a spoon falling was recorded and then sampled into his productions. The same approach was applied to soundtrack visuals he would record with a cheap video camera. This was the beginning of the project. Last year, LA Timpa released his debut EP Animal on Toronto label Slow Release. Animal garnered critical acclaim and was featured on Pitchfork, i-D, The Fader and more. Recently, he has been held up in Toronto’s Easy Life Studio, honing his skills on late night sessions with Jim Anderson (Cold Specks, Moby, Anna Calvi). This creative environment lead to LA Timpa adding additional production to two tracks on Cold Specks’ anticipated forthcoming album, and being invited to join her as a special guest on her Fool’s Paradise World Tour 2017. LA Timpa is working on new music for release this fall and is performing on a slew of dates across the UK, EU, North America and Canada.
Lalin St. Juste (of the Seshen)
Lalin St. Juste (of the Seshen)
The Seshen is a San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece led by singer/lyricist Lalin St. Juste and bassist/producer Akiyoshi Ehara. Their forward-thinking sound combines synthesizers, drum machines, live percussion, and entrancing harmonies to create an unmistakable fusion of R&B, synth-pop, and electronic music. This chemistry is complemented by St. Juste’s stirring vocals and soul-baring lyrics – the meditations of a self-emancipated spectator who explores worlds, both real and imagined.

'Lalin St. Juste can sing. In a way that your ears cannot fail to hear. A young Haitian-American woman, Lalin fronts The Seshen, an electronic/soul band whose sound emphasizes emotional resonance. After rising to the top of the Bay Area music scene, they were recently signed to Tru Thoughts, a record label out of England, and are earning a national and international following.' --Oakulture
