EP: Tasha The Amazon – Die Every Day
The Toronto Emcee Spits Fire Over Industrial-Strength Beats on Her Entirely Self-Produced New EP
Critical Praise for Tasha The Amazon:
“Toronto’s Tasha The Amazon is a Rising Star” – Pigeons & Planes
“Tasha is powerful, and sounds even moreso over these absurdly big, grimy, hectic, infectious beats” – Respect Mag
Over the past half-decade, thanks to the popularity of artists such as Drake and PartyNextDoor, Toronto Hip-Hop developed a reputation for a woozy, sensitive mixture of Rap and RnB, but the sounds of the city stretch far beyond that generalization. Coming out of the 6 with a fierce flow and beats hard enough to make Death Grips blush is Tasha The Amazon, a talented rapper/producer and the antidote to her city’s reputation for softness. Today, Tasha releases Die Every Day, her latest EP, packed with thumping beats, ferocious verses, and anarchic lyrics. Produced entirely by Tasha and production partner Danthrax(together, they are Bass & Bakery), Die Every Day is relentless, keeping up a high level of intensity throughout its eight tracks and hardly leaving the listener room to breathe.
Notorious in Toronto for her energetic stage performances and her warehouse parties, Tasha began to grow a following in the U.S. with her debut solo project, FiDiYootDem, prior to gaining acclaim over the past year from Billboard, FADER, and Hypetrak, who wrote, “she’s got next.” Tasha recently signed a deal with the Windish Agency, a premiere booking agency, and on Novemeber 29th she will be performing with YG at The Wiltern in Los Angeles as part of Redbull’s 30 Days In LA 2016. Featuring previously released tracks including “Picasso Leaning“ and the Pigeons & Planes-premiered “Prayer,” Die Every Day is available to purchase and stream on all services worldwide.

Tasha The Amazon Background:
A bomb in a china shop, Toronto’s Tasha the Amazon is an artist, producer, and bad gyal. Notorious for rude stage antics and warehouse parties shut down by police raids, her unconventional lyrics deal as much with partying and hood mischief as they do with anarchy and civil disobedience. After cutting her teeth in collabs and collectives, the German-Jamaican powerhouse released her debut solo project, FiDiYootDem, to critical acclaim in late 2013. Hundreds of thousands of video views and streams later, Tasha is preparing to release her forthcoming EP, Die Every Day, in the fall of 2016.
