Do You Feel Excited?

A 5 track nu-disco ep (26m 11s) — released November 30th 2018 on DO RIGHT! MUSIC

Tush is a Toronto based duo consists of Kamilah Apong and Jamie Kidd. Kidd's background as a bassist, DJ, producer and co founder of Box of Kittens, running techno and house events across Toronto and Berlin. Apong, who spent her formative years in the band Unbuttoned, came across a Craigslist ad for a live disco project searching for a vocalist. From this humble beginning, they met and developed a fruitful creative partnership.

Their debut EP 'do you feel excited?' deliciously criss-crossing between the dance sounds of electro funk, early disco, and soulful 90's house. Kicking it off is 'To Darnelladon (and Beyond)', a cosmic-house love letter with sweeter than sweet vocals laced through an evocative bassline. Paying homage to the pioneers Freeez, Tush covers the Brit-Funk classic 'Southern Freeez' - keeping the sultry lightness of the original while conveying something musically urgent, true to Tush's style.

Underneath the celestial party jams, Tush shows a fascination with disco's dark matter. Long interested in combining dance floor disco antics with vulnerability, the final track 'Oh My' provides a space for frontwoman Apong to sonically explore trauma. 'I am not only a hype dancing diva' she says, 'I am a whole, multifaceted person that gets sad, jealous, anxious and insecure'. 'Oh My' soars with a tender intensity is, at once, strong-willed and supple.

Tush is here, do you feel excited? Stay tuned as they grind deeper into the dancefloor with their 2019 follow up.

With rhythmic ferocity, “To Darnelladon (and Beyond)” jolts listeners into a euphoria of polychromatic vibrations. - Earmilk
