Tipped as “one to watch” by NME, Mixmag and DJ Mag, TSHA is a London based producer who is quickly emerging as one of the most exciting young artists coming out of the capital. Her forthcoming EP “Flowers”, without doubt her most ambitious and accomplished body of work so far, will be released on 13th November 2020 via Ninja Tune, featuring collaborations with Gabrielle Aplin and Malian griot music group Trio da Kali.
Her 2019 debut on Ninja Tune’s Counter Records imprint—‘Moon’— was immediately hailed as one of Billboard's 'Best New Dance Tracks’ with Pete Tong naming it his ‘Essential New Tune’ on BBC Radio 1, describing TSHA as “a rising star!”. The subsequent EP “Moonlight” was #1 in Jamz Supernova’s “EP Top 5” on BBC 1Xtra.
Entirely self-taught, TSHA released her debut EP “Dawn” in 2018, setting out her stall as an artist with an ear for warm, groove-laden basslines and bright, melodic hooks. Her follow-up single “Sacred”, released in 2019, immediately caught the ear of Simon Green AKA Bonobo, who included it on his “fabric presents” compilation album, with TSHA also finding a fan in George FitzGerald who supported ‘Sacred’ on his Radio 1 Residency show.
Support across DSPs has been immense for TSHA, already amassing almost 15M streams across digital platforms. Recent singles ‘Sister’ and ‘Change’ have received fantastic Spotify coverage including New Music Fridays in over 15 territories including the US and UK, plus editorial playlists such as mint (5.5M), Dance Rising (1.9M), POLLEN (1.3M), Massive Dance Hits (1.2M), Fresh Finds (714K), Friday Cratediggers (297K), Deephouse Delight (138K), TOP SHELF ELECTRONIC (111K) and many more.
